Podcasts have become a popular avenue to indulge in everything from sports to literary fiction to pop culture.
That little purple app on your iPhone (that you may have deleted or moved to a random folder) holds hours of audio leisure. They can also be found on Spotify + dozens of podcast-specific apps. Much like how Netflix or Hulu offer series to binge, podcasts deliver a series of “episodes” or audio files that you can listen to at your own pace.
