Podcasts for Your Long Road Trip

Podcasts That We Love

Have a long car trip planned this week? We have some ideas for filling up that time in the car!

Our family has made a lot of car trips over the years. My family all lives in Oregon, and for years my in-laws lived in California.

Over the last twenty-four years that we have lived in Oklahoma, we have probably made at least twelve car trips to the West Coast. Yes, we often drive instead of fly.

We don’t usually drive this time of year. We usually take trips during the summer, but they are still long car trips, close to thirty hours in the car type of trips.

How do we fill our time? Audio books and podcasts.

I will admit that we also do some movie watching, but we have always had the rule that some of the time will be used for learning.

When you are in a car with nothing to do for hours, it is a great time to take advantage of it. Spend some time learning something new.

Since it is a holiday week and a lot of people will be traveling, I thought I would share a few podcasts that I listened to recently and really enjoyed.

The Same Page Podcast

  • I shared about The Same Page Podcast a couple of months ago, but I wanted to mention it again because it is great for kids. Not all people have a great audio voice, especially when it comes to kids stuff, but she does. Both kids and adults will enjoy this one.

Stuff You Missed In History Class

I love the podcast Stuff You Missed In History Class. It is one of my favorite podcasts. I love that the episodes include enough information without being too long.

I have pretty much enjoyed all the ones that I have listened to so far, but here are a few of the episodes that I listened to recently and really enjoyed.

From the Front Porch

  • The Great American Read Revisited– I posted about The Great American Read this summer. My thoughts haven’t really changed on it, but I still enjoyed listening to Chris and Annie’s thoughts though. I don’t agree with them on everything about The Great American Read, but it was nice to hear that they agree with me on a lot of the books on the list.

Podcasts About Food

  • A few months ago I shared a few of my favorite podcasts about food and food brands. You can find that list here.
