Podcasts We Listen To

We put together a few of our favorite podcasts that are tried and true among the Bigfish team.

Here at Bigfish, we work pretty hard to create some amazing things for our clients. But, as it goes, it’s not all work with no play. While our team may have some pretty diverse interests, we do share one love in particular.

Podcasts have been around for a long time, but around 2004 they started to gain momentum and make waves in the entertainment/education/information world. By definition, a podcast is simply a digital audio file, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.
Basically, a pretty awesome way to share knowledge, interests, and stories with others.
