Radiolab was the first podcast I listened to, and what I loved the most about it was the silences. The spaces they left to allow you to stop and process what you just heard, the gaps they made to give you time to catch up.

Years later, that is still the part of podcasts that most gets to me. I appreciate being given the time to breathe.

And then go on with the story


@jjatria Incidentally, that's why I think I was so shocked the first time I heard that some people listen to podcasts at faster speeds.

I get why, but I don't think that would ever do it for me. Not at least for the podcasts I care about
