There is nothing that makes holiday road trips go faster than a good story. Be it fictional or ripped straight from the headlines, podcasts these days do exactly that: deliver us listeners a solid story that we can sink our teeth into. Even better, there are so many podcasts out there these days that no matter what you’re interested in, there’s something for you. Oh, and did we mention that podcasts are free entertainment?
If you’re hitting the road this holiday season, why not pop on a podcast to help the time go by? Whether it’s a radio drama like Alice Isn’t Dead or Limetown or maybe something news-driven like Pod Save America or even something funny and topical (the best of both worlds in our opinion) like Keep It or Pop Culture Happy Hour, there’s no reason you won’t find something to your taste.
