Listening to podcasts really helped pass the time on the roadtrip this past week. I even think it helped me stay more alert while driving by keeping my mind engaged, rather than lulling it to sleep like radio music might.
A few of my favorites from this trip:
This America Life: A great episode titled “Tarried and Feathered”, especially the story about the small town gossip website Topix.
The Moth Radio Hour: Great oral story telling. This story Millionaire Hot Seat will warm your heart.
Dinner Party Download: Fun pop culture talk, with that intelligent slant you would expect from public radio.
TED Radio Hour: Brings TED talks to life on the radio with interviews with speakers. They group talks into theme episodes to make a whole story out of several viewpoints.
