9 things you can heavily relate to if you're addicted to podcasts

Getting through all of them is a skill in itself.

IT’S FAIR TO say that podcasts are the way of the future. Why listen to the radio when you can listen to programmes on every topic you’re interested in from every corner of the world (mostly) for free?


But there are some feelings that we all have when we love podcasts just that little bit too much. Here’s 9 of them.

1. Nothing beats the feeling of being all caught up.

There’s that sweet, sweet smugness of having an empty podcast feed and feeling like the smartest person in the room.


2. At the same time, nothing compares to the stress of having a full feed.

There’s always that one day during the week when several of your podcasts come out at once. You go from having a near empty feed to one filled with 5 different podcasts and you’ll be internally screaming ‘WHERE WILL I FIND THE TIME TO LISTEN TO THESE!?’


3. You sometimes wish you had a longer commute.

Depending on your job, you may be able to get podcasts in during the day but if not, the commute is the only time to get through the feed. JUST GIVE ME ANOTHER 20 MINUTES EACH WAY.


4. You try to fit them in any way you can.

Going down to the shop? Podcast. Doing the house work? Podcast. Making a cup of tea? Podcast. Anywhere. Anytime. Any place.


5. You even try to listen to them in bed.

And you inevitably fall asleep and lose your place. Sometimes you wake up in the middle of an entirely new podcast and you’re totally confused as to why the Mayo GAA team have somehow been involved in a murder in Australia.


6. You’re very familiar with Squarespace, Casper Mattresses, Momentum Watches and Blue Apron.

You’ll never be stuck for useless discounts for North American stores will you? Helpful if you ever move over there.


7. You could probably get away with a murder at this rate.

You’ve listened to every type of true crime podcast out there (or you’ve listened to one at least) and you fancy your chances of being able to get away with a murder. We won’t cross you.


8. You constantly fear you’re going to run out of stuff to listen to.

You’re scrolling through the recommended podcasts on iTunes, you’re asking friends and family for ideas and you’re sending messages of help on social media.


9. And then you oversubscribed and find yourself totally overwhelmed again.

It is unfortunately a never ending cycle. Just put down ‘lifelong learner’ on your CV. It’s a skill. Trust us.
