Podcasts…often divisive among crowds! It seems like there’s truly no in between, you either love them or you hate them! Today, we break down our top 5 podcast recommendations for your daily commute!
What is a Podcast?
A podcast is essentially a digital audio program that listeners can tune into whenever and wherever they’d like. Open the relevant application and stream or pre download specific episodes to listen to later.
Podcasts are great because they come in all shapes and sizes! From long format 90 minutes+ podcasts to quick and digestible 20 minutes episodes, you can pick and choose what you like depending on how much time you have.
What are you interested in? Cars, gaming, true crime? There’s a podcast for that. The plethora of variety in podcasts allows you to tune in for something as general as pop culture and also something as niche as how certain entrepreneurs built their ultra-successful tech empires. Aside from the sheer entertainment that many podcasts provide, they are also a really great learning tool to acquire new skills or hone in on a certain topic that you’ve always wanted to learn more about.
The best part?
It’s totally free! Apple’s podcast app, Spotify, and a number of various other platforms easily allow you to stream the podcast of your choice wherever you like! Tune in anywhere. While you’re at the gym, cooking at home, or commuting to and from work. Hop in the car, press play, and enjoy a drive that’ll make your commute feel like seconds not minutes!
