Sound for Working at Home: Podcasts
One of the benefits of working from home is that your background noise doesn’t have to be elevator music or the mind bubbling chatter of your most talkative colleague. When you’d like something to play in the background podcasts are a great option. You can access them via feeds online or podcasts apps. Having tried many, ESC currently recommends the free app Pocket Cast for your smart phone or tablet device. Here are some free podcasts for you to enjoy while you work from home. Like samples at CostCo, you’re welcome to try a little without committing. You can also find something you enjoy and then search for similar things.
