Hello, my name is Rachel and I am a podcast addict.
I thought I had it under control. I didn’t think I needed them or that they controlled my life, but I was wrong.
Every morning when I wake up, I open my podcast app on my iPhone and press reload. I hold my breath as the new podcasts download like I’ve pulled a lever on a slot machine and am waiting to see if I hit a jackpot.
This morning I was a little disappointed, only two new Fresh Air casts. Really, that’s it? I pressed reload again. No dice. Don’t get me wrong I love Terry Gross as much as the next NPR junky, but two podcasts is no where near enough for my 8-hour shift.
This issue has motivated me to up the number of podcasts I listen to. Until two weeks ago I was strictly a This American Life, Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me and Science Friday girl. But after devouring all three show’s podcasts for the week in one work day, I knew I need to take action.
I wonder if there is a 12 step program.
