Just a few years ago it seemed like everyone was saying “There’s an app for that.” Apple even had the phrase trademarked in 2010. Recently, I find myself saying the same thing about podcasts. This format is gaining tremendous traction. In fact, an estimated 144 million people in the U.S. have listened to a podcast with 90 million listening monthly and 62 million listening weekly, according to Edison Research.

So, why is this seemingly low-tech format of digital media becoming so popular? Well, for one, it uniquely caters to fit our busy lives. If you’re like me, I don’t always have time to read a long article, news post or novel or even watch a TV show or movie, but I do have time to listen to a podcast while I’m commuting, working out, cooking or cleaning – pretty much any place I would listen to music. And, with over 700,000 podcast shows available and nearly 29 million episodes, there’s definitely something for everyone. Whether you’re interested in more serious topics like business, news, politics, history and education or you prefer something lighter like trivia and comedy, it’s likely that there’s a podcast for that!

My new found love for podcasts has not only allowed me to access education and entertainment I would have never time for, but it has also given me a positive perspective when working with my team to put together ABC’s own podcast series - CredCast.

We are constantly looking for new and useful ways for our busy professionals to digest important information from us and podcasts seemed like a perfect addition to our arsenal. ABC CredCast topics include all things credentialing - certification, continuing education, accreditation and more. Each month, you can join our host Jim Lawson, ABC's Outreach Development Manager, as he interviews experts and provides insights and helpful tools for navigating all of ABC’s credentialing programs and recertification processes.

ABC’s CredCast is by no means the only podcast that can help improve your business.
