13 Podcasts for Your Summer Road Trip

Podcasts have been a source of escapism for many of us amongst all the chaos of life, from slow moments during quarantine, transitioning to working from home and bringing joy to mundane household chores. Podcasts have been around thick and thin and have become necessary for everyday life, especially in the Summertime. 

As lockdown is beginning to ease, it’s essential to continue stimulating ourselves and engaging in conversations and stories that will enhance our personal well-being. Podcasts allow that short time away from reality while still remaining engaged and productive. 

Whether you’re looking to get enraptured by real-life stories, learn something new, or have a laugh, we’ve got you covered. These are podcasts that we’d recommend to keep you company during your long drives to your next Summer destination. Browse, download, and thank us later. ;)
