If you are hitting the road this holiday season, a podcast is the perfect way to past the time. Here are 6 podcasts to binge on your holiday road trip.

Most of my childhood travels happened by car. My younger brothers and I would be squashed in the backseat, elbowing each other for more room, while we tried to entertain ourselves with various books and games. One of my favorite ways to pass a long road trip was listening to radio shows, like Adventures in Odyssey. As an adult, it’s podcasts I turn to for entertainment on a long drive.

If you are hitting the road this holiday season, a podcast binge is the perfect way to past the time. Of course, I recommend listening to these podcasts even if you are staycationing.

6 Podcasts to binge on a holiday road trip

1. What Should I Read Next?

I guarantee your TBR pile will never shrink if you listen to this podcast by Anne of Modern Mrs. Darcy. Anne interviews readers about their favorite books, asking them about three books they love, one book they hate, and what they’re reading lately.

2. TED Radio Hour

Stay up to date with the latest in technology, education, and design with this mix of interviews and clips from previous TED Talks. This podcast never fails to give me something new to think about.

3. History Extra

In association with BBC History Magazine, this podcast digs deeper into topics by interviewing notable historians, who share their thoughts on history and on their own research. Not as boring as that might sound.

4. The Thrilling Adventure Hour

Billed as “A stage show and podcast in the style of old time radio,” this podcast is a hilarious spoof of commercials and pulp fiction that could have graced the airwaves in a bygone era. This is a show you will want to start from the beginning, and you may not want little ears around.

5. Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History

I like learning about history, so I’m including two history podcasts in this roundup. Unlike History Extra, which goes briefly into a subject, Dan Carlin digs deep. His King of Kings series is over 12 hours long as Dan picks apart ancient history. It’s fascinating, but you may not want little ears hearing about how traitors were treated at that time…

6. The Next Right Thing

Emily P. Freeman’s podcast is soothing, like a cup of comfort for your ears. This is a pretty new podcast, but each week Emily talks about creating ways for your soul to breathe.
