Admit it. That half hour in the tube, the cab or stuck in traffic could be spent doing something a little more productive than chewing your fingernails down the quick or eavesdropping on other people’s phone calls. Whether your ride in to work is 20 minutes or 2 hours, invest in your personal growth by listening to podcasts during your commute.
Here are two great ones to get you started:
- NPR’s Fresh Air (goo.gl/0UEnOm)
Hosted by Terry Gross, Fresh Air offers a glimpse into arts, culture, science and technology each day and features interviews with contemporary luminaries—great thinkers with great ideas to consider.
- Startup (goo.gl/S3tMoS)
Listen in as host Alex Brumberg focuses in on walking away from corporate careers and making a go at starting his own company. Subsequent seasons follow others as they take the leap from dream to start up.
