Podcasts and the Information Landscape

While I was watching a favorite Masterpiece! series, I learned about the Masterpiece Studio podcast.  Then I learned about the Circulating Ideas podcast through one of my professional lists.  What do the experiences say about information literacy?

I learned about my chosen podcasts in context, in my recreational setting and my work setting respectively.  Information is shared in context (Association of College & Research Libraries, 2016, Information Creation as a Process section).

Though neither the TV series nor the listserv are scholarly sources, they are appropriate sources to learn about the respective podcasts.  In other words they have authority in context (ACRL, 2016, Authority is Constructed and Contextual section).

Do you subscribe to podcasts?  If so, how did you find out about them?  How do you stay informed in your personal and professional lives?
