I can’t be the only one who loves this useful website – SCN Encourager

But Cindy said I probably am.

She sizes it up this way.

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-9-22-38-pmWhat are the odds?

That’s what she wonders.

How many other podcast junkies can there actually be?

Especially among the ranks of busy school leaders and communicators?

Cindy hopes very few.

She said she’s not quite ready to lose faith in America.

But thanks to this amazingly simple website, I see things differently.

I see my “listening options” exploding!

All because this cool internet resource will allow you to convert any YouTube video link into an MP3 file.

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-9-24-45-pmThink about it.

Forget the dumb pet antics, musical parodies, and the crazy plays in the world of sports.

You know also YouTube hosts tons of thought-provoking TEDx talks, group presentations, and lectures.

Certainly most of them are not be all that entertaining and fun to view.

But they sure are worthwhile if you just listen to them while puttering around the house – or as in my case – while shaving and showering in the morning.

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-4-14-58-pmCheck it out.

Try taking this 14 minute TEDx talk for a speedy-kwik audio-only spin.

Here’s Dr. Cal Newport’s presentation called “Quit Social Media.”

Now it’s just bing – bing – bing – bing (4 steps!).

1. Go to the YouTube video.

2. Go to “Share” and copy its link.

3. Now click over to:


4. Drop in the YouTube link into the box shown on the website and sha-zam!

After a few moments you’ll be able to download an MP3 file and be good to go.

Not only do I think you’ll love this YouTube to MP3 tool, I think you’ll enjoy Dr. Newport’s talk.

He’s convinced social media is chipping away at our capacity to concentrate.

He may be onto something.

And I’m definitely going to finish listening to the MP3 I downloaded yesterday.

But first I want to watch a few more dumb pet antics, musical parodies, and the crazy plays in the world of sports.
