So I can see advantages and disadvantages to this, but the key thing is, of course: if it works for you, it works for you.
The argument against
First off, for many people listerning to spoken word recordings while they are doing something cognative makes the task harder. Personally, I'm in this group (although I can listern to audiobooks/radio/video if I am doing something physical like working out making dinner).
And this is a small aspect of how physically working out (in which case you almost want someone to distract you from the bit of your brain that is saying 'let's just stop and have a rest') is very different from interlectually working out/working. Consider the a chess competition: it would be difficult to play if someone was next to you saying things like "That's it, really good concentration there; just 30 more seconds of thinking harder". I exaderate for comic effect but that's certainly a thing.
The argument for
So I have some experince of this working for me and I'll give you two case studies...
First off, I have a guilty pleasure of watching the TV show `Hoarders'. I tend to watch it online and while watching stories of people who have serious problems involving stuff and mess I'll see, just to the side of the screen, a coffee cup that needs watching. This will suddenly bother me and I'll pause the show and wash the cup.
I'll come back - start watching again and I'll notice that the wash basket is full and so I quickly potter off and do that. By the time I've finnished the episode: I'm sitting in a very clean house.
The second case study is to watch things like TED talks - hearing the stories of people making great change in the world can make you think a little differently - you start thinking things like "Actually I'm not going to watch Big Bang Theory, I'm going to go and donate blood".
