We are in an age of an unprecedented ability to share information. If you want to know how to do something, there is an excellent chance there is a blog to tell you how to do it. For example, there is no shortage of homebrewing blogs out there, but not everybody has time to spend hours reading up on a hobby.
Thankfully, there are also a number of podcasts you can listen to on your daily commute that accomplish the same thing. Here are five podcasts that can help make you a better brewer.

The Brewing Network is a fantastic resource for novice brewers and for beer lovers in general. Presented by a bunch of the most enthusiastic beer lovers you’ll ever “meet,” The Brewing Network hosts novice home brewers and professional brew masters to help you get the most out of every batch.
Homebrew Bound is dedicated to the wonderful world of brewing beer at home. With a hefty dose of humour, the hosts detail their adventures in beer experimentation that allow you to learn from someone else’s mistakes. The podcast’s production company, Blind Ninja Studios, seeks to help others learn as they go.
BeerSmith Home Brewing Radio offers something a little different for home brewing aficionados.
