The Urban Dictionary defines ear candy as "sounds that elicit a pleasurable response from the listener."
For most genealogists, these sounds are podcasts that teach us about everything genealogy. Colder weather keeps us indoors for the most part, so why not cuddle up with a set of earphones and get your genealogical education groove-on!
While this list (which is in no particular order) is by no means all inclusive, it should keep you busy for quite awhile.
"Mondays With Myrt," "Wacky Wednesday," "Mastering Genealogical Proof" online study groups, "Genealogy Game Night"
Now that Marian Pierre-Louis has landed a great gig with the Legacy Family Tree Team as their new Social Media Marketing Manager, I hope that she will still have time to continue with her podcasts. She is such a great host and interviewer!
George Morgan and Drew Smith are the hosts of the longest running regular weekly podcast in the world! The one hour show is full of genealogy news and information.
Lisa Louise Cooke is called "The Queen of Genealogy Podcasts" and for good reason - she hosts 4 different shows!
Scott Fisher has created a new and different type of show for radio, aimed at showing how fun and interesting family history and genealogy can be. Genealogy is a topic that a lot of people are into and each week Scott talks about amazing finds and connections people make.
Bob Packett loves to tell stories of the real people behind the often sterile descriptions found in history texts. His conversational style, filled with anecdotes, quips, and humor, will bring to life the characters of history.
And many, many more!
