Hands-Free Learning: 5 Podcasts Every Photographer Should Be Listening To

Mark Cuban reads a lot of books. The billionaire angel investor and entrepreneur is known to read as many as 500 pages a day.

Unfortunately, not everyone has that kind of time on their hands. But there is a lot that can be learned from Cuban’s reading discipline. There is an obvious correlation between high levels of success and lifelong learning.

So, how does one fit learning into a busy 40+ hour work week? Podcasts.

The beautiful aspect of podcasts is that they are completely hands-free, and you can enjoy them while doing other activities. Take a moment and break down your day. Think about how much of your time is spent driving, working out and doing chores around the house. One hour? Two hours? Three hours?

This is all time that you could spend listening to podcasts.
