100+ Books, 500+ Podcast episodes, and 1000+ news articles. 2015 was a busy year.


This past year I really got into Podcasts. The show that pushed me over the edge was Startup by Gimlet Media (paired with the Overcast app with 2.5x+ listening speed). After that I was hooked.

It’s amazing how engaging audio content can be. It’s really made me less excited about listening to regular articles with a Text to Speech voice like Siri. There is so much more information conveyed through tone and generally how people speak. Recorded conversations can be so much more information rich than plain articles.  I think there is also something to be said for the type of story telling that is done in a podcast or radio program vs. a news or online article. In general there is more depth and nuance in content on podcasts, and I’m really looking forward to listening to more in the coming year

I read another 107 books this past year, many of them from long series. I’d really like to try and read more non-fiction, but it’s hard to get a good queue going. If you have any recommendations, or even better a good source for non-fiction books, please let me know.

I’m going to try and start this year off with a deep dive into books on non-visual user interfaces, so hopefully I can keep the  educational trend going.

This is the first time I’ve exported all of the articles I’ve read from Pocket (I didn’t realize you could until now). It’s not very useful for more than just getting a raw count (1357). It would be great to do some data visualizations with the links and meta data. Maybe some word clouds or something. Oh well, next year.
