Citigraphica spent a day with  the LiSTNR experience.

“Grant Blackley explains Listnr and we are definitely down for it”.

Walking into the Listnr Experience had a very familiar experience, you start your day in the bedroom… waking up to an alarm is the normal feel right? But infact Australians are doing it wrong. You should be waking up to noise that helps you to start your day. Motivation being the key.

So a man wakes up to his favourite podcasts courtesy of Listnr… this gets him in the mood with a little bit of sport, humour and we have forgotten an element, Kids. Kids are able to tune into Alexia and tell her what they want to listen to,  in this scenario Hamish and Andy “Do not open this book”.

When did ironing a shirt become soo entertaining. A known fact, what you start your day with will continue through your day so listening to something with gumption and motivation might just make those daily reports easier to process.

A little detail about me, due to the editing of photos I play my favourite tunes but since discovering Abbie Chatfield and her podcast, editing has become more entertaining and the time goes fast. Having women like Abbie record podcasts that most women actually think about, questions we have in a mind too embarrassed to ask. Abbie stated she has no filter and us women are ok with that. She has become the voice for us, she asks the questions, finds out the facts and stories and yet again no filter! 

We move into the next room being the gym… Now most people go to the gym but use their own earphones. Reason being not everyone likes the gym music. Having the headphones on and tuning into different podcasts allows you to either play tunes or listen to stories, stories that can make you laugh, motivate you or educate you.

After the gym sesh you are pretty much ready to hit your day although there is the public train ride. Depending where you are coming from can take 20 minutes to 2 hours. You can switch off and start shutting down your mind before you get home after a hard day.

In 1998 heading into the city took me 1 hour and let me tell you I went through several devices over the course of 20 years. Cassette tape decks, CD devices then came phones where you could listen to your playlist, or your apple iPod.

Thank goodness for digital music and podcasts. Carrying cassettes and DVDs were really annoying and those iPod were pretty bulky.

The best part being at the end of the long day, there is always something to wind you down or keep you company especially when preparing food. Alexia play cooking with Richo!

So jump on board and start listening, it could be something you’ve been looking for!
