Alright Junkies, we need your help! Let us know what your favorite construction related podcast is by entering it into the form below! Last year, Cesar Abeid’s Construction Industry Podcast took home the crown in our Inaugural contest. Only time will tell if he’ll be able to repeat or if another podcast will prevail. Other nominees from last year’s ballot were the Construction Citizen, the Contracting Coachcast, and Construction Leading Edge. Since the contest had ended, at least 2 other construction podcasts have entered the seen, including the ConTechTrio and Future Tradesman.
What's a Podcast?
Recently made popular in the mainstream by NPR show Serial, a podcast is essentially a radio show that can be downloaded to most mobile devices and mp3 players. Instead of being wedged into listening whatever happens to be playing on the radio at the time, whether it’s a song or talk show, consumers can now go out and find content about topics they’re interested in and podcasts play a huge role in that. Podcasts can be listened to at your computer or on-the-go and since they’re pre-taped, you never have to miss a second of your favorite show. There are tons of them out there, ranging from Comedy, to movie talk, to murder mysteries, to (most importantly) construction.
How can I listen to a podcast?
The most popular way to download and store podcasts is to use iTunes. If you're against iTunes or want to listen to a podcast on an Android smartphone, there are many other apps available. Our favorite happens to be Podcast Addict.
Nominations will begin as soon as this article posts and will end at Midnight PST on Thursday, June 2, 2016. At that time, no more nominations will be accepted. Nominations will be researched and any deemed to not be related to the construction industry by our staff, will be removed.
After nominations close, voting will begin. Voting will be open for 2 weeks from the day the polls open, date to be determined. Winner, by popular vote, will be announced shortly after poll is closed.
