Whenever I see a person with earbuds I ask myself, “What are they listening to?” because what we hear shapes who we are in the long run. Often, podcasts fill that airspace. Podcasts offer free downloadable audio content to anyone with a computer, smartphone, or digital device. Some of the popular “podcatchers” are iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher. In fact, you can subscribe to Immanuel’s podcast on Stitcher HERE.
Why Listen to Podcasts?
What you hear influences how you think. Your time and attention really matter, and your commute time is more than background noise. Proverbs 18:15 approves, “An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.” Podcasts are an excellent alternative to talk radio and music. They allow you to selectively hear profitable conversations for your mind, heart, and spirit.
