Podcasts are, without a doubt, the easiest way to consume information while multitasking. If you haven’t yet, you really need to dive into the ocean of podcasts that is available out there. There is no need to give your podcast your undivided attention, so you can easily listen to it while doing something else, like making your morning commute to work, or running the treadmill.

If you are an Android user, there are a number of apps that you could use to listen to podcasts, including Podcast Addict, Castbox or Google Play Music.
