Podcasts provide information in the form of episodes via digital audio. It's just like listening to the radio, except there's minimal singing in these ones. They allow us to easily process a large amount of information on the go. Podcasts are also hugely popular in the US and it's easier than ever to find a suitable topic of interest.
There's tons of information on smart homes on the Internet. Sometimes, we don't know how to digest it too. If you're a budding smart home enthusiast, perhaps podcasts are the way to go.
