I find podcasts an interesting and easy way to stay abreast of trends and developments in Learning and Development (L&D). When scrolling through episodes of one of my regular podcasts recently I noticed a “You Might Also Like” feature on the Podcast app which suggested other podcasts that I might be interested in. This has nudged me to expand my listening menu. I’ve subscribed to the set below (some old favourites, mandy new) and am listening consciously to several episodes of each podcast with the intent of writing a review.
I started this process about a week ago and have two immediate observations. The first is that it’s easy to identify ‘hot topics’ in the industry as they are being covered by different podcasts. These topics include Virtual Reality, curation and xAPI. The second is that a varied listening diet is healthy. Although there may be some common topics, each podcast brings different perspectives to it based on the people who feature on the podcast and the style or tone of the show.
Please let me know if there are other L&D podcasts you like to listen to so I can try them out too.
