Comments from some of those who selected PocketCasts as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2016

“Since I started running I found that I sometimes needed to hear something other than the sound of my feet on the pavement. I don’t like running to music too often as I find it makes me speed up so looked around at audiobooks and spoken word content. I discovered a great podcast app (Pocket Casts) and have a menu of 20+ podcasts which I listen to regularly. These include the TED radio hour, Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History, the Tim Ferriss Show, RadioLab and This American Life. There is enough variety that I can find content which I can use in work and it’s all available for nil/neutral cost.” Andrew Jacobs, L&D Manager, UK
