On the road, we consume TONS of podcasts.

Here are a few of my favorites.

I’m so jealous of the person who has never listened to this podcast, the person who has the opportunity to start the back catalog from episode one. Once I was that person, and I’m jealous of past me. While the team went through a well-publicized shakeup last year, the show is back and working on being better than before. Which is the best we can all do when we mess up.

As long as you don’t mind reaching for the tissues while you’re driving, or sitting on a plane next to strangers, or working around other people, you can listen to this podcast. Be careful, please! New episodes are only available on Spotify (dislike restrictions!), but you can still catch old episodes on all the other podcast apps.

Here are some of my favorite episodes:

This American Life

An obvious choice, but what lover of great story-telling podcasts could fail to mention it?! Not this one.

Here are some of my favorite episodes:

Snap Judgement

I love Snap’s interesting and musical stories. These stories stick with me for a long time. I also listened closely to Snap when I was starting my own podcast, to learn from how they used sound, which made me appreciate this show even more than before, if that’s even possible!

Here are some of my favorite episodes:

The Journal

My favorite of the many daily news pods for their dinner-length dive into a current topic every day that’s just the right balance of informative and entertaining. Not doing favorite episodes with this one, since it’s new every day.

Vice News Reports

Vice News Reports is a current-events podcast tackling a new subject every week (with a decidedly Vice-voice).

Here are some of my favorite episodes:

Limited Series

All fascinating.


I would LOVE to hear your suggestions for other podcasts I should check out! I’m always looking for something new to devour.
