The COVID pandemic has changed everything, even the way we listen to podcasts. Before the outbreak, listeners tended to listen in their cars. When the pandemic hit, Spotify noticed an increase in listeners around activities like cooking, and doing chores. There was also an increase in podcasts related to wellness and meditation.

If you haven’t jumped on the podcast bandwagon yet consider giving them a try now. 

  1. We have a lot more time on our hands
  2. You don’t have to leave the comfort of home to learn a few things or be entertained on a topic of your choice

Why are we talking about podcasts? There are a lot of home renovation, design, real estate podcasts out there to explore.

99% Invisible

5 Points Realty believes in the stories behind the houses, and buildings we sell in the communities we call home. 

99% Invisible is a show about the hidden design and architecture all around us. While architecture is a key theme, the podcast is really about the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about and uncovers stories you’d never know by ‘just reading the plaque.’  

You’ll learn how inflatable men came to be regular fixtures at used car lots, or how the fortune cookie got its start, or why Sigmund Freud opted for a couch over an armchair? With over 400 million downloads, 99% Invisible is one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes.
