Podcasts, a great alternative for training music

Sorry for taking so long to upload a new mix. The beginning of my cycling season has taken all my time lately but I’m still building up the tracklist for my next upcoming mix.

That doesn’t mean you have to listen to shitty music, unmixed tracks during training!! There are tons of mix out there, always a way to update your ipod with fresh music for free (and legal!). I’m a big fan of podcasts. When I’m getting sick of my own stuff (because some tracks are made to become annoying at some point…haha) I switch to podcasts from my favorite djs. This is actually what I use to stay up to date and discover brand new tracks and upcoming releases.

Most of the big djs record a new podcast every week, or at least every month. Most of them are one hour none-stop music. Althought the difference with my mix is the talk-over (they don’t talk much, the show is about music, promise). Sometimes a bit of promotional tracks, but also exclusive ones.

How it works
For those who aren’t familiar with podcasts, I use iTune to subscribe to whatever podcast I want and they all appear in the podcast section of my library. To find the podcast and subscribe, you go into the iTune Store, use the search bar (see my suggestions below), and click subscribe. You will automatically get the latest episode (or use manual download if you,re not sure and don’t want to take all your computer disc space!). Then all you have to do is to upload it to your ipod, using the podcast section again. From there, updating your music will take you a big 15 seconds.

Here are the guys (and their show) I follow religiously. If you like my sets, you will like theirs too.
