For those of you who love podcasts like me, I thought this might be interesting.

Times have changed so much and for the better.

When I was a kid, I used to play with short-wave radios, police scanners, CB radios and eventually moved on from book tapes to using a VCR on super slow to record talk radio.  I was and still am a massive nerd!

Below was my home radio set, complete with a custom cabinet I built in wood shop.  

Flash forward another ten years, and I was able to download a program that would log in to streaming podcasts from radio stations in Minnesota, from California where I was living at the time, and automatically record them onto my computer.  Then I could listen later and skip commercials.

Now my podcasts automatically download, and I can listen at high speed with no commercials. 

It's a great time to be a podcast listener. 

Recently, for $25 I added “Alexa Auto” to my car, which makes listening to podcasts over the car speakers super easy and sounds great.  It also allows me to dial-up “baby shark” for my son Will a few days a week on our way home from daycare. 

😊

Happy learning and thanks for taking a look!
