When do you listen to podcasts?

I have a backlog of podcasts to catch up on. When does everyone listen? It's hard for me to multitask so I pretty much can't be doing anything else while I pay attention. I get caught up sometimes on long drives when I'm the only one in the car, but that's about it. I usually work out to high energy music and/or with a buddy, so that's out for me. How do you guys work them into your schedules?

I listen to them on my long or slower runs, and also while I'm cleaning. I have a friend who listens to them at night in bed before she falls asleep. I'm interested to see other people's responses. I love podcasts, but I have SO MANY to listen to and not enough time. I can't do the car because…I don't know. I just HAVE to listen to music in the car, unless it's a crazy long drive.

I listen to them on the way home from work, either on the 20 minute bus ride or when I'm walking (an hour-ish). I don't like to listen to them on the journey in to work as I hate leaving them half-finished.

On my daily hike or run, when I'm cooking or doing house work and on my commute. I'd listen at work if I could get away with it.

I listen in the car on longer drives – I save the ones my husband might like for family stuff and listen to the knitting/crafting ones when I'm alone.

I listen when I'm doing stuff around the house – cooking, laundry, dishes. It's my little spoonful of sugar for the meh chores

I listen at work but it really depends what I'm doing. Anything that requires a lot of thought means I need silence, but if I'm doing something more graphic or repetitive I like the talking.

I do often put one on as I'm going to bed with a 20 min timer or so. It helps turn off my own thoughts by listening to someone talking much moreso than music.

I would totally listen while working out, except, well, I'd have to work out and I'm lazy.

I listen when I workout, cleaning the house, making dinner, and sometimes when I am doing stuff on the internet.

I listen in the car, while walking (even just to/from the car at work), while I'm cleaning the house and when I'm knitting.  I like to watch Netflix sometimes when I'm knitting, but lately I've been turning more to my podcasts.  I'm almost caught up on This American Life, and I think at one point I had 24 episodes hoarded in my feed.

In the shower (Bluetooth suction speaker is the best), on my commute if I'm not listening to an audiobook, on my lunch break I'll take a 40 or so minute walk (after 20 minutes of eating and GOMI checking), while I run, cleaning, mowing/yard work, whenever. I don't always pay close attention to them but I like having background noise.

I go for a walk around the neighborhood and listen, while I'm commuting, while I'm cooking, cleaning. And anything else where I don't need to pay terribly close attention to the task!

I play them on my iPad while I'm cleaning around the house or when I'm having a bath. I also usually download them onto my iPhone for when I travel for work (I listen to them on the plane or when I'm bored in my hotel room at night).

I listen when I'm cooking or cleaning the house, or when I'm walking (which is really my only exercise) or in the car.  I've also started listening to them in the morning when I get ready, which is when I used to listen to commercial radio.
