Podcasting's unexpected side effect

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

I think I've figured something out. Since I commute my public transit, I see a lot of people wearing headphones. The majority (like most commuters) aren't smiling. They're in their own worlds, on their way to or from work or school. But I've found myself smiling quite a lot with my Sennheisers on, and even occasionally laughing out loud, which probably puzzles a few people.

The reason is that, most of the time, I'm listening not to music, but to podcasts, and a lot of them make me happy, even when they veer at length spectacularly off topic. Maybe especially so.

So if you see someone with the 'phones on laughing, don't worry, they're not insane. Probably.
