    This is really brilliant.Instead of just listening to songs and even though it gives calmness we are not really learning anything from it. But by listening to podcasts I think you can really gain and learn something new everyday. It is great how you have listed the best podcasts. You have save some time for me. Thank you so much for sharing this article

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us, people are always engaged in commuting from place to place. Many end up in traffic and some have stress free drive. I spend about One hour and thirty minutes in my car everyday because I live far away from work. But I don’t experience traffic on most days

      Thanks a lot for your comment Clement. An hour and a half on a daily basis is quite a bit, huh. If you haven’t started yet I can highly recommend some educational listening.

    You and I are kindred spirits, as I love to use my time productively, even while driving.  I have also read Tim Ferris’s book about the 4-Hour workweek, and loved it.  I didn’t realize that he had a podcast, which I will now be following.  And the Rich Roll sounds like it is in my wheelhouse.  Currently, I subscribe to Sirius XM satellite radio and love channel 128, the Joel Osteen channel.  I find him to be the encouragement I need before and after my job as an RN.  I agree that commuting time is a big chunk of our lives and we should definitely not waste it.  How do you feel about audio books?  This is something I am also thinking of trying…   Thanks for a great and thought-provoking article.

      Thanks a lot for your comment Trish. 

      I am happy that you found out that Tim Ferriss has a podcast too. It is worth listening too.

      I have tried audiobooks too but I don’t get the same experience from it as reading a book. Too often I find the narrator annoying 🙂 and if he/she isn’t super good at getting all the moods and details from between the lines, I cannot get into it.

    Yes, what a fantastic idea for people who spend a lot of time in the car.  Why not educate yourself while you’re driving instead of listening to music like so many people do, getting lost in their own stressful thoughts, lol.  I read The Four Day Work Week years ago, great book.  I know how fast time flies, too, when you’re listening to something worthwhile.  I used to do books on tape when I lived on Long Island and had to drive 1-1/2 hours each way to work.  Wow, it didn’t even seem like it because it was so interesting.  Great ideas!

      Thanks a lot for your comment Babsie.

      You are right. Time flies a lot faster when you do some active listening while driving. Before you know it, you are at work or at home. Tim Ferriss and Rich Rolls have close to 800 shows combined so I will not run out of good stuff anytime soon.

    Hi Lars, 

    Audio learning is one of my favorite ways as well as visual. This website is already saved as a favorite and I really like the sample podcast portals where I could assimilate the experience. 

    Very well informed and I will have to invest in this process of learning whilst in my car. 

    Brilliantly done!

    This is really a positive way to deal with the stress of commuting to work. In other countries, apart from having to contend with traffic, work may be a good distance say 1 hour or more. This can be frustrating at times. Learning while commuting is a great idea. Sometimes listening to music helps, but other times you just want to get to your destination. I have really nevet

      Hi Brenda. 

      Thanks a lot for your comment.

      It is quite amazing to think about how much time is wasted around the world. Can you imagine if we could utilize just a fraction of that time for something useful? Wow, huh?

      All the best.

        Hi Lars
        I have never looked at commuting this way. It’s great that you have shared this. Now I can look forward to doing something productive while commuting to and from work.

        Awesome post!

        All the best to you as well.

  7. In fact, any time while driving I’m always looking for a way to make my time productive for my mind, if I have to cover a long drive, I love to listen to Harcore History, because is, in my opinion, the best Podcast and each episode will length five hours or even more sometimes it’s sure helped me to learn more, thus adding more productive hours to my day.
    Thank you for sharing Best Podcast for Driving when Commuting, I truly enjoy reading the way you’re spending your time while driving.

      Hi Jacqueline.
      Thank you for your comment and for the tip about the history podcast. I will certainly look into it. As it is with most in life, variety is important, so it is good to change the podcast topic every now and then.
