Listen Up: The 3 Best Podcasts for Your Long Road Trip – Nicholasville, KY

Podcasts have become this generation’s form of portable entertainment that isn’t in a musical form.

They’ve really become a godsend for those who don’t want to listen to music on the road and catch up on the day’s news, whether that be sports, news or some form of entertainment.

When you’re on the road on a long road trip and the satellite radio isn’t doing it for you, podcasts are always a good alternative. They don’t have the emphasis of music to keep you entertained on a trip, but they’re intellectual and insightful enough to keep you concentrated on the road with the words coming through the speakers.

Here are some of the best podcasts for your long road trip. Plug in your smartphone and go to town with these:

The Dan Patrick Show

If you’re a sports fan like me, there’s no better sports talk show in the country right now than Dan Patrick and his “Danettes” talking the talk in the day’s world of sports. He’s a fantastic interviewer and has some of the best insight you’ll find.

The Adam Carolla Show

You’ve seen him work with Jimmy Kimmel and even played on a cartoon series featuring Buzz Lightyear. This comedy star has his own podcast and it’s hilarious. Carolla will have guests like Larry David and Louie Anderson stop by every once in awhile. It’s a treat for all audiences.

TED Radio Hour

When in doubt, it doesn’t hurt to throw some education in the mix. I can tolerate TED talks from time to time, and while they might not be my cup of tea, there are actually some really good ones. Watch one and you may get hooked for a day. It happened to me.


Podcasts are great and can also be entertaining, especially if you have the right car to listen to them with. That’s why it won’t hurt to visit your friendly Nicholasville Hyundai dealership and check out a new 2015 Hyundai Elantra, especially if that new 2015 Hyundai Elantra features SiriusXM Radio and an auxiliary port to plug your phone in and listen to said podcasts. Be prepared on your long family road trip with more than just music.
