Keeping up with the latest tech trends can feel like a burden. Podcasts can help alleviate this chore. Whack on a podcast while you are doing the weekly food shop and jobs a good 'un. Learn and shop! Listening to productive PodCasts can be a great productivity booster. I can only speak for myself, but, simply having a list of PodCasts and YouTube videos to watch whenever I'm food shopping, on a bus (ewww), or, with some spare time allows me to keep up with the latest tech trends easily.
