“Where words fail, music speaks.” Hans Christian Andersen
Every day I listen to about six to eight podcasts on my way to work in a futile attempt to keep up with the overwhelming flow of information. Most are on tech/geek stuff. However some are focused on non-work stuff like music. MPR’s Musicheads is a decent podcast that introduces you to three artists every week. The Musichead’s staff reviews the music and tells whether “it is working for them.” They also have an interactive bit were they throw out a question to the audience, and then you can join the forums and get involved in the discussion. It can be a bit stuffy at times when some of the reviewers take art to seriously but the info is well thought out and I have found quite a bit of music that I now listen to regularly. Give it a try.
