“Podcasting is great. Total freedom.”
This past week, as I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been under the weather. My concentration has been limited, so I’ve been spending my time listening to Podcasts.
As most of you fellow bloggers may know, Podcasts were first known as audioblogging, and has its roots dating back to the 1980s. I’ve listened to a quite a few Podcasts through the years. However, it wasn’t until about a month ago I listened to my first Podcast from the Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcasts.
This first Gottfried Podcast was an interview he did with Ken Berry. After this entertaining interview, I was so hooked that I then went and listened to all the previous interviews, with such stars as Barbara Feldon, Bill Mumy, Dick Cavett and Henry Winkler, just to mention a few. You definitely should listen to the Bill Mumy interview. Mumy is a child actor famous as the little boy in the Twilight Zone episode, “It’s a Good Life”, where he played a child who terrorizes his town with psychic powers.
We are so bombarded with TV, Movies, and visual stimulation that it was refreshing just to listen to an interview. You find yourself really listening when you don’t have images to distract you from the content. Growing up with TV as a household staple, I never really experienced the radio style of entertainment. Radio and/or Podcast entertainment leaves your imagination open to so much more.
There are thousands of Podcasts to choose from on SoundCloud. But, I’m really enjoying listening to Gilbert Gottfried who sits down in his New York City apartment with Hollywood legends and behind-the-scenes talents.
