Podcast or Bust…

In the last couple of months I have started listening to several different podcasts to help make my driving time more productive and enjoyable. I’m not really sure what prompted me to look into Podcasts to tell you the truth, but the fact is there is a lot of really valuable and entertaining content out there for free.

I would like to share with you three Podcasts that seem to always deliver good content. The first one is “This Week In Photo,” also known as “TWiP,” and is hosted by Frederick Van Johnson. “TWiP” usually comes out with a new episode, you guessed it, every week. The content of this podcast is a mixed bag of photo-related news articles as well as tech tips, gear reviews,  and interviews with industry professionals. I can’t tell you how much valuable information I have gleaned from the conversations on this hour-long show. “TWiP” can be found by clicking here.

The second Podcast I have been listening to is “The Art of Photography,” hosted by Ted Forbes. This one seems to be a little bit more sporadic with it’s timing. For a while there it didn’t seem like there were any new episodes coming out but just recently it seems like there has been a new one every week or two. None the less, this show tends to be a little shorter and each episode concentrates a little more on one subject at a time. There was a real interesting one about setting up a photography website not too long ago and then the topic was revisited again not too long ago giving some small tips on social media marketing. I like this Podcast because it takes a little bit less time to listen to a whole episode than “TWiP,” however there is still some really good content being produced. “The Art of Photography” can be found here.

The third Podcast that I will touch on is Martin Bailey’s Photography Podcast, hosted by none other than Martin Bailey, a Tokyo based Nature and Wildlife Photographer. His Podcast seems to also focus on one topic at a time and is a bit shorter than the “TWiP” episodes, none the less, the topics are generally interesting and provide a lot of good information. Martin sometimes covers techniques or products and often he will get into the meat and potatoes of how he made an image using the “enhanced” Podcast that includes visuals as well as audio. Martin Bailey’s Photography Podcast can be found here.

All three of these Podcasts are free and well worth your time. Let alone the fact that driving has become a large part of most of our lives and there is now a way to make that “wasted time” into a productive part of your day. So check out the latest Podcasts and let me know if there happens to be one that you find interesting, I’ll be sure to check it out!
