Podcasts can be one of the most useful tools for a writer. They are easy to access, they are plentiful and diverse, they are FREE!, and they are something you can listen to while doing other tasks. Often reading is a key suggestion for writers, but sometimes this can be a little tricky for a number of reasons, but time management is a core one.
