Music vs. podcasts… how do they stimulate the brain differently?



I’ve been craving podcasts and haven’t desired music in months. I used to be a musician so it’s kinda weird. Wondering why?

I went through a bout of this.

Podcast after podcast—musician myself.

Now, I’m stuck listening to Dark Side of The Moon on repeat.

Perhaps OCD or some variant in my case. Someone provide something more scientific, pls.

Your brain certainly processes them differently. Podcasts contain information, so they stimulate the areas of the brain that process those.

Music is, for lack of a better phrase, more primal.
