We’ve taken a few longish drives recently, and as a strategy for keeping the boys quiet we’ve downloaded some kids audio books to listen to in the car. The most recent ones were a couple of Famous Five stories, and Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach. The boys have enjoyed listening to them, and my wife and I have enjoyed revisiting our childhoods.
For my bus trips to and from work, I have three podcasts that I regularly listen to. Two of them are geocaching-related: Podcacher and Geotalk. They’re both entertaining to listen to, and I find them useful for keeping up with the goings-on in geocaching. The other podcast is the ABC radio program Conversations with Richard Fidler. I don’t listen to every episode, but choose the ones that sound interesting. I haven’t come across a geocaching-related one yet, but I have listened to a library-related one. It was an interview with Oliver Everett, Librarian Emeritus of the Royal Library, Windsor Castle. If you’re looking for some library podcasts, check out this post on the ALIA Sydney blog for some suggestions. Happy listening!
