I think the process started last summer. Around this time. I just went through my subscriptions and got rid of anything that I didn’t really enjoy that much. And since then I have moved back and forth a few times But slowly I’ve been getting rid of anything I didn’t really enjoy.
I’m down from hundreds to 14, or 16 if you cound individual feeds for podcasts that have multiple feeds.
This is how I do it:
- If I skip a lot in a podcast: unsubscribe
- If I don’t listen multiple weeks in a row: unsbscribe
- If I get the feeling that I don’t care that much: unsubscribe
- If it goes over 6 months without an episode: unsubscribe
Hardcore history is exempted from the last rule.
The result is that I listen to more audiobooks and much more music.
