Am I being over-stimulated by sound?

Am I being over-stimulated by sound (more specifically - podcasts, audiobooks and to a lesser degree music)?

I'm spending almost all of my "in between" time (walking, biking, eating, showering) listening to those things.

Is constantly being subject to new information stimulus is detrimental to my ability to do "unconscious processing/problem-solving" (presumably the driver behind the "aha moments in the shower" phenomena/etc).

though I observe this only when I have actual problems to solve (thinking about some problem deeply for a while...)

Does it reduce the rate at which I'm able to produce original ideas/thinking?
