I for one know that I can not run while listening to people speak. I've tried listening to the radio while I run before and every time the music stops (due to talking or commercials) I can tell I start to struggle.
However, this past summer I downloaded a book (short story rather), The Gingerbread Girl, and I listened to it while I walked on the rail trail. The story was only about 2 hours long and I walked more than 7 miles while listening to it. It was a blissful day on the trail! That experience got me thinking that I'd love to download more short stories (preferably less than 2 hours) to listen to while I walk.

Even though my first pick of a podcast was disappointing, I'm not giving up on them quite yet.
Do you have any suggestions for me? Which ones should I stay away from? -M
PS: I'm pretty sure my ipod died this week. I was using the ipod Nano. I guess its time to look for a new one.
Who still uses an ipod and who uses their phone?
