Chances are, you already heard the word “podcast” at some point. In fact, you have probably listened to one—or more—today. This year alone, more than 155 million people listened to a podcast every week, and that number keeps on growing every day as more people gain interest in shows that talk about everything from lifestyle to finance.
In the Philippines, there is also a massive appetite for podcasts. Although most listeners are in Manila, experts also see a growing interest in Bisaya podcast, especially from Filipinos who work and live overseas who are looking to beat the loneliness by listening to something familiar and close to home.
But why exactly should you listen to a Filipino podcast in Bisaya?
You get to learn from people you understand.
There is still not a Pinoy podcast in the Bisaya dialect, but what you have right now is highly informative and entertaining. The most popular Bisaya podcast must be Barok and Takya, a free-flowing conversation between two hosts about anything under the sun.
One day, they will talk about family life, and the next, they will discuss social issues in the Philippines. If you are overseas and looking for something that brings you closer to home, a Pinoy podcast in Bisaya is the way to go.
You get to find inspiration and motivation.
Although it is easy to find many podcasts that talk about motivation, inspiration, hard work, and all other essential things, nothing still beats the kick you get out of listening to a Bisaya podcast that speaks your dialect.
Cebuanos and other Bisaya-speaking Filipinos are known to adapt to almost any kind of language quickly. But it would be such a breath of fresh air to listen to a podcast where you are just like listening to friends talking back home.
You get to entertain yourself.
Being overseas can be incredibly challenging when you do not have many “kababayans” to talk to. But listening to a Philippines podcast allows you to entertain yourself on the way to work, during breaks, and before you sleep, even if you do not have a lot of friends who speak your dialect.
Whether you are looking for something funny or informational, you will indeed find a Bisaya podcast that will keep you entertained for hours.
You get to grow as a person without really trying hard to.
Think about this: you are probably tired of reading this article now that you reached this point. But if this whole article were read out loud to you while doing the dishes, commuting to work, or loading your laundry, you would find it easier to digest and enjoy.
More Filipinos are now discovering the benefits of listening to podcasts because it offers an opportunity to grow without consciously trying hard to learn something new.
There is a growing appetite for podcasts in the Philippines today, so it is safe to say that the future of podcasting in the country is looking good, especially now that podcasts are available in both Tagalog and Bisaya.
