If you’re listening to this when it comes out, you may know that next week I’m going to a huge conference for podcasters known as Podcast Movement. And I thought it only appropriate to do an episode related to this.

You may be using the topic of today’s episode right now and listening to this episode with it. You may have even been appalled two years ago when Apple announced it was getting rid of the jack to plug today’s episode topic into on their iPhones. Nevertheless, almost everybody has a pair or two nowadays. And many, like me, may not even use them for their intended purpose, which is to listen to music or podcasts, but as a way to safeguard ourselves from talkative coworkers or overly friendly sales people.

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Headphones.
