Listening in on someone else's conversation could help you.

Over the past few years podcasts have become a source of learning, entertainment and enlightenment for millions of people around the world.  Short interviews have turned into hours long conversations.  Interesting stories and people that would likely never have been heard are now available to be discovered whenever, wherever you want them. 

 

Life as a carer can be hectic and time consuming, we lose touch with family and mates, we can become socially isolated and feel out of sync with the world but with podcasts we can feel somewhat connected by listening in on a conversation that we'd perhaps like to be part of ourselves.  A good podcast can fill in time whilst waiting for a loved one at a medical appointment, provide entertainment whilst doing household chores, challenge our thoughts and beliefs on a subject or simply help us relax at the end of a busy day.

 

There are thousands of podcasts available online to stream or download, usually free, that cover virtually any topic you are interested in.   

 

In no particular order,  Men Care Too has selected the following podcasts which each offer something different that may be of interest, help improve your situation or simply used as a way to be entertained.  Show descriptions are from either the podcast website or iTunes, to listen simply click on the logo for the website where you can download episodes or follow the link to iTunes found under the show description.
