The world of podcasts is becoming increasingly more popular. People are switching off their music library, turning off their radio, closing their books and now sticking on a podcast to fill their time. But why is this? A significant reason for their growth in popularity is that a podcasts format can uniquely fit into all of our busy lives. There is a podcast for every topic, from lifestyle, to news, to science, to tech, and the list goes on, therefore there is a podcast for everyone. Podcasts all range in length, so if you only have a spare 10 minutes, or an hour-long commute, you can be sure to find a podcast that suits your needs.
