Subscription Overload

I wrote down a list of podcast that I have subscribe to and there are over sixty-three of them. I realized I may have subscribed to too many. Now some of them like the The Get Fit Guy ones are ten minutes or less, however on the other side of scale are podcast like Hello Internet are at times closed to two hours long. When it comes to listening I divide the podcast into three categories, ones like the Pen Addict where I listen to every episode, ones that I occasionally skip episodes like How I Built This and finally those I just listen to occasional episodes like Planet Money. Thinking about it there are a fourth group and those are ones I listen to almost out of habit or because someone has recommended it and I feel I should like them also. Which logically doesn’t make any sense since we all have different likes and dislikes, but we all do it (don’t we). My husband and I call it the Indian Pickle Problem. I love Indian Pickles he does not, but he kept trying them trying to figure out why I liked them. I would laugh at him because what he was doing didn’t make any sense to me, but now I think I understand. Anyway I think it is time for me to cull my podcast subscriptions.
