Amazing Podcasts You Should Start Listening to Right Now

For as long as man has used language, the art of oration and rhetoric has been at the forefront. This is because it is not everyone’s cup of tea to hold the attention of a vast audience in an engaging way. Entertaining people is much harder than it appears to be. There is no substitute for the art of rhetoric. Like Plato so famously said:

“Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men.”

It is very true, the power that rhetorical speaking holds is unbelievable. But today, there has been a little shift in the historic form of this fine fine art. People no longer just believe in the empty claims that an orator makes; they need a story, some evidence, or an emotional connection to it. This is the exact reason why there is so much hype for podcasts in the market. It is the best time to be making or listening to these gems. Daniel Pink precisely sums up the functioning and effectiveness of a podcast in his following Twitter post:

“Human beings have an innate inner drive to be autonomous, self-determined, and connected to one another. And, when that drive is liberated, people achieve more and live richer lives. “

So if you are someone who has this urge to listen to people, grab knowledge, share experiences, listen to people without getting involved in a conversation, etc., then podcasts are just the thing for you. There is so much to discover in the realm of podcasting, from movies to books, cricket to hockey, cakes to turkeys, and so much more.

So that you don’t get lost in the never ending sea of genres, here is a list of some amazing podcasts you should start listening to right now.
