Hi Friends,

Yes, I am the one that said “I’d rather look at snow than dead grass” but don’t blame me for all that snow and cold! Looking forward to Spring at VSC!

PODCASTS!

 

(I’m addicted, thanks to Julie) A podcast is like a radio program on all kinds of topics to download on your phone, tablet or computer; most are free AND it’s easy. There are podcasts on every topic; news, sports, health, mystery, religion, education, science, art & more. Some are funny, some are weird or creepy, and some will intrigue or educate you. Many popular T.V programs, host’s & celebrities have a podcast where they interview various guests & discuss different topics.

Here are a few random podcasts that were “recommended on the internet”

  • This American Life by NPR, Sleep With Me (boring bedtime stories to help you to sleep. Trust me, it’s boring!)
  • Left, Right & Center (weekly podcast discussing politics from every angle)
  • The Stressed Out Caregiver,
  • True Crime Story Time,
  • Rock Your Retirement (dating, travel, health)
  • Radio Diaries ( True short stories told by the person who lived it. Personally, I love this podcast!)
