(RNN) - Tis the season for New Year's resolutions. For many, the new year is a time to invest in a new you.
Maybe you want to get in shape, become a chef or speak fluent French in 2014. You could always blow a wad of cash on a stack of books to help educate and fuel your new passion.
But, if perhaps "making better financial decisions" is high on your resolutions list, you might want to check out the wealth of free resources via iTunes podcasts to get you started.
All you need is the iTunes software, available for download at www.itunes.com, and an internet connection to access hundreds of free tutorials on everything from music and art to fitness.
Here's a look at some of the podcasts that can help you reach your goal. Did we mention they're free?
Coffee Break French, German and Spanish are just that - podcasts that allow you to learn a new language on your coffee or lunch break. Running anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes, you receive enough instruction to keep you growing but not so much that you feel overwhelmed with material or the time commitment.
Maybe all you remember from your high school Spanish class is "hola." If that's you, the podcasts start with basic terminology and move through more advanced phrasing, so you can jump in to the program at whatever point you're most comfortable.
There are lots of cool ways technology can make our lives easier. However, most of us don't have a Ph.D. in geek or even know where to begin. The technical whizzes at CNET walk you through some simple, cool things - like Tweeting with Siri or fixing an unresponsive iPhone home button - to help you make the most of your gadgets.
If your curiosity is never satisfied and you are the ringer on every trivia game you ever play, Stuff You Should Know has a treasure trove of random - and probably useless - information for your ever-absorbent mind. Learn how bullfighting, music sampling, daylight savings and silly putty works.
Perhaps someday you too could be a lifeline for your buddy on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
