I started reading Romance of the Three Kingdoms a while ago but stopped after getting about halfway. I guess I do not have enough context to appreciate it. Like the Mahabharata, I guess. The podcast seems like a nicer introduction.

While listening to podcasts is great during my commute or travelling, the ad supported business model is not compatible with news (or opinion, I can’t tell the difference). I stopped consuming any type of news media, newspapers, TV, podcasts; about 5 years ago and to my surprise my life is no different.

I started reading Romance of the Three Kingdoms a few years ago and got even less far. I think it was just a few pages in when I stopped so the podcast is my attempt at turning it into an audio book plus commentary which I might appreciate on my commute.

As for news, I totally concur. I have trouble reading my weekly and my monthly newspaper (Wochenzeitung, a left leaning weekly paper, and the German edition of Le Monde Diplomatique). And the daily news just flows by as a stream of headlines in social media. I don’t often click through.
