Kia ora tātou
Summary to 25 August 2019
I’ve been enjoying listening to podcasts when I get the chance. A challenge in itself, as I find it really hard to be actively listening to people talking whilst trying to work. Practicing music, reading or writing isn’t as conducive to podcast-listening as other creative arts such as painting or drawing! It often takes me about 3 or 4 chunks to get through an hour-long podcast, grabbing 15mins here or there when I can. I’m lucky to not have a long-commute, which is when most people seem to expand their brains with podcasts. Despite my slow progress, I’m interested in finding some more great podcasts to listen to. Add your discoveries to this thread.
