I commute about 30 mins each way to work 4 days a week.
I don’t like to fill this time with aimless commercial radio, and I am not a huge fan of audiobooks (I am trying to change that but haven’t yet…)
I like to spend this commute consuming Podcasts – and I get through a lot of them in a week.
Below are my current favourite’s:
This is some light listening and all centred around NBA. The Lowe post is the more serious of the three, with The Starters and BS being a little more light and easy to listen to. Great listens for NBA fans.
- The Lowe Post
- The Starters
- The Bill Simmons Podcast
Have been listening to all these since they began. Big fans of all the people involved in these shows and although not super regular – well worth a listen when they come out.
- The Journal
- The Tim Ferriss Show
I’ve always had an interest in True Crime, but have only just started listening to a few podcasts on the topic. All of these podcasts cover 1 case per episode, and some are pretty intense. Really well produced and researched.
- Sword and Scale
This American Life is the original podcast and always amazingly put together. I consume the episodes as soon as they are released (Fair regularly)
- This American Life
One thing I haven’t mentioned in here is how and when I listen to podcasts. I find that I need to listen to them when I can concentrate fully on the information being spoken which for me is when I’m driving, catching the train to or from work, and when I run (The latter I like the most)
Got any podcasts you know I should add to my list? Let me know
