It really depends in, what I am trying to learn / master, wether I choose a text, a video vor a podcast.
I go for videos when I want to learn something that is not only managed through cognition. I learned how to knit and sew by watching videos. This way I was able to repeat certain steps as many times I needed them to master them and moved on. No real person ever was so patient with me before. ;)
When using podcasts I prefer to read the text along with it. This way I feel safer somehow. Just listening to something that is completely knew to me, makes me feel afraid of not getting and being able to memorize all the New facts I need.
