Why do I listen to all these podcasts?

First, let me say, the reason I can spend so much time listening to podcasts (& audiobooks & music) is that I drive my kids to/from school 25-30 hours every week. I’m motivated by learning new stuff, but if I am honest, what I choose is also shaped by the example I want to set for the ‘little ears’.

Before I started the long school commutes, I used to listen to a lot more fiction and storytelling than I’d be comfortable sharing with my kids. There’s always at least one kid in the van with me—my youngest who is going on 5, draws constantly, and mostly doesn’t mind me listening to “stories”. So keeping the topics and language shareable and good is important to me, too.

Here are the podcasts I‘ve been tuned in to in the last year, and why I listen to them; some fit under more than one category...
