Why listen to podcasts in 2020? In 2020, it's a reality: podcasting is everywhere. Everybody listens to it, everybody produces it. So why podcasts?
Podcasts are both entertaining and educational, and are tailor-made for a multi-tasking life.
Podcasts are also evolving. They have come a long way since their modest beginnings in 2003. Technological advances and ubiquitous connections have enabled mobile applications to stream podcasts almost anywhere.
In 2020, 44 % of Americans have already listened to at least one podcast in their lives. So, if this is not the case for you... Why should you listen to a podcast for the first time?
Like many people, you may feel that listening is somehow "cheating" compared to reading. This is a particularly common concern for people who listen to audio books. Either way, you are being rewarded too much for too little effort. But research reported by Sage Publications show that there is no difference in comprehension between listening and reading content. You are not cheating. In fact, you are only enriching your knowledge and understanding in a different way.
You can probably find the information you need.
Whatever the subject you want to know more about, it seems that there is now a podcast for that. In fact, there are 550,000 active podcasts on Apple's application alone and more than 18.5 million episodes available. So it would be hard not to find what you're looking for.
The ability to listen to high quality content, wherever you are and whatever you are doing, is one of the main reasons for the growth of podcasting over the last 15 years. And this medium is particularly attractive to entrepreneurs, who are busy starting a business, often with their own hands.
Not only can you listen while you're on the road, waiting in line or on a plane. But you can also listen while you do all those everyday activities that take up so much of your time.
And 11 % of podcast listeners turn on programs while they work. This can be very useful for entrepreneurs who are busy with their usual work tasks.
Everyone loves to come together to share stories that teach, inspire and entertain. We seem to be made to absorb what we hear. That's why, when we listen to a podcast, we tend to listen carefully. We don't skim or sweep away as we would with a newspaper article or blog post. We create images in our minds of the scenes described. You connect to the story, and you learn.
Of course, listening to podcasts doesn't instantly catapult you into the ranks of the ultra-successful: people like Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs and others have had to do a lot of work to translate all their reading into results. But podcasts will certainly put you in the company of the top performers: 51 % of monthly podcast listeners have incomes of $75,000 or more, compared to only 38 % of the general population, according to The Podcast Consumer 2018 report.
Podcasting is so fashionable that it is no longer only found on podcast platforms but also on Instagram! The plus: allowing deaf and hard of hearing people to listen to a podcast with their eyes! Indeed, podcast creators now post them on Instagram with subtitles, most of them with the same subtitle. use Captured to subtitle their podcasts. !

Your body speaks for you. ⠀ The last time you felt like talking to someone, seducing someone or asking them something, how did they stand? What were their gestures? What was their posture? ⠀ One of the things that has been hardest for me to question in recent years is my "physical" vulnerability. To show with my body and gestures, that I am open, vulnerable, that I accept to receive, love, compliments, hugs, kindness, and to show that I give. ⠀ Being open is too much equated with weakness, and yet it is what often inspires us to be very inspiring to others. ⠀ Excerpt from my video How can I be more radiant? Available on Youtube! ⠀ https://youtu.be/RLADMJ_hj1A ⠀ Thanks again for your feedback it's incredible! ⠀ ⠀ #jesuisfleur #vulnerability #mindset #personal development #langagecorporel
