I don’t like to waste time. Some things like sweeping the kitchen floor, mowing the lawn, and walking the dog aren’t wasting time, but are time-consuming activities that we must do. These activities don’t take much brain processing power.
One way to make your time more productive is to listen to podcasts while doing menial tasks. If you are a writer like me, you can learn a lot by listening to author podcasts. But which ones?
I did a quick search on Google for “best podcasts for writers.” Clicking the first ten results yielded over 100 suggestions. So I counted up each suggestion as a “vote” and got this list of the top podcasts for authors.
- Writing Excuses
- Grammar Girl
- I Should Be Writing
- The Creative Penn
- Helping Writers Become Authors
- Dead Robots Society
- The Creative Writer’s Toolbelt
I’ve listened to all of them before, but the only one I continued listening to was The Creative Penn. However, I just subscribed to all of them again to give them another chance.
