Podcasts have been causing quite a lot of noise lately. Yes, literally. If you’re completely new to the podcast scene, podcasts are a series of audio files made available online. Most podcasts are set up like a TV or radio show, with different “seasons” and episodes focused on varied topics featuring special guests.
Listeners can subscribe to specific podcasts, download new episodes, and listen whenever it’s convenient to them. While podcasts have been around for about a decade — think back to 2004 when Apple’s iPod minis were all the rage, and iTunes Music Store had just gone international — there’s been a surge in listenership in the last couple years that’s getting a lot of attention from business owners, celebrities, advertisers, and consumers alike.
There aren’t too many podcasts specialising in the mining industry, but these three are defiantly worth listening to:
The podcast channel discusses and educates on the industry news, hot topics and company reviews through live interviews with mining professionals and leading figures in the mining industry.
