The Best Podcasts For Your Daily Commute

Unless you strictly take online classes or work from home, you probably have a commute (in some capacity) in your everyday life. Commuting can be pretty tedious and boring, so how do you make your commute a little more bearable? You can listen to music, or you can follow in the footsteps of the millions of people who are listening to podcasts. There are *so many* different podcasts out there, and you’re able to stream them on various platforms, which is useful if you already have subscriptions to streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music. Podcasts are all the rage right now, and besides the fact that they’re a different and exciting way to occupy yourself, they can be mentally stimulating as well. Here are some of the best podcasts out there to make your daily commute more enjoyable.
