(This is no slam against Podcasts or UT, just stating an opinion which is only my own)
As a person who reads at supersonic speed, I find podcasts frustratingly slow to listen to.
Try listening to them in bed. It’s a great way to unwind before going to sleep.
If i listen to them while ‘alert’ at work, i find myself tuning out and having to rewind.
Do the people around you talk any faster than a normal discussion [podcast] pace?!
There’s a difference between being involved in a back-and-forth conversation and listening to a lecture or another conversation.
Podcasts are really great when you have to do stuff that needs your attention.
Like driving your car, walk in the streets, on the train, even doing your job or hobby. Reading on the other hand requires your full attention.
