Podcast tips:

1. If you find a content creator who is able to present complex ideas in digestible bites, it may save time and help to first look through their entire catalogue of episodes on the topics you struggle the most with. 

2. Once you find a content creator you enjoy, it may also help to listen to each episode in chronological order. This will help you understand the current events at the time of recording. A lot of the issues that the mainstream media like to bring up about Bitcoin have occurred in the past. This will benefit your understanding of the news cycle and how it affects the Bitcoin price in the short- and long-term.

3. For those who do not have a lot of free time throughout the day, a good way to save time is to play podcast episodes on 1.5x - 2x speed. This may take some time to get used to. It may make sense to start on 1.25x speed and then try faster speeds once you are comfortable with that setting. 

4. Listening to podcasts while completing chores is also a great source of motivation, especially the ones you find yourself putting off.

5. If you are traveling, be sure to download the podcasts you wish to catch up on in order to avoid service interruptions.

6. If you find yourself spending a significant amount of time listening to podcasts on platforms that play ads during episodes, you may want to subscribe to the platform in order to avoid listening to ads.
