Perfect rainy day movies

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 by

While some may not love the gloomy winter weather, there’s no denying that spending a day rugged up on the couch with a comfy blanket and your fave woolly socks isn’t so bad when it’s spent watching movies with the soft pitter-patter of rain on the window.

That being said – how do you choose which one to watch first? Some movies have iconic rain scenes whereby the main characters somehow manage to still look beautiful even though they’re soaked through – although from my experience, this isn’t realistic! Others are just great movies that are easy to sit back and relax to thanks to their easy watching. Next time you’re looking for things to do indoors on a rainy day, check out the 25 titles below recommended by the iiTeam for your viewing enjoyment.

Podcasts you’ll get hooked on this year

“Podcast” is a word that’s floating around at the moment. So what is a podcast? Basically, regular Broadcast Radio (AM and FM radio) only has so many channels to use. As a result, radio stations attempt to appeal to as broad of an audience as possible, hence the word broadcast. In contrast, podcasting “narrowcasts” specialised content to those who choose to tune in. Podcasts have multiple distribution points such as SpotifyiTunes and Soundcloud, and websites where episodes can be listened to or downloaded.

For those who love a good fun fact, it may interest you to know where the word “podcast” itself originated. The name was first mentioned by Ben Hammersley in a 2004 newspaper article as part of a quick brainstorm of possible names for this growing new platform. The “pod” of podcast is borrowed from Apple’s digital media player the “iPod”; and the “cast” portion of podcast is taken the term “broadcast” used in radio. Despite this, don’t worry – you can still tune in if you don’t have an Apple device or iPod!
