I got my brand new car at the beginning of June. In just over 6 months, I have put about 36, 000 kilometers on it. Most of that was dog related travel and all of it was with me as the driver. Podcasts are my go to entertainment on the road because they are free and plentiful. . In no particular order, here are the podcasts I listened to on the road last summer with their descriptions as they appear to me on my podcast app.
Crime Junkie ~ Ashley Flowers & Brit Prawat ~ Crime Junkie is a weekly podcast dedicated to giving you a true crime fix. Every Monday, Ashley Flowers will tell you about whatever crime she’s been obsessing over that week in a way that sounds like you’re sitting around talking crime with your best friends. The storytelling is straightforward and free of rabbit holes so the cases stay suspenseful and are easy to follow. If you can never get enough true crime… Congratulations, you’re a Crime Junkie!
Dr. Death ~ Laura Beil ~ Dr. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications. And all they had to protect them was a system ill equipped to stop the madness.
Fatman Beyond ~ Kevin Smith, Marc Bernardin ~ Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin give us their spin on pop culture before going in depth on the finery geekery we all know and love.

And now we’re bringing that same focus to you in a new way.

Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine ~ Justin and Dr. Sydnee McElroy ~ Every Friday, they dig through the annals of medical history to uncover all the odd, weird, wrong, dumb and just gross ways we’ve tried to fix people over the years. Educational? You bet! Fun? We hope!
Science Vs ~ Wendy Zukerman ~ Science Vs is your team of friendly fact checkers that blow up your firmly held opinions and replace them with science. Wondering whether you should drink detox teas like an insta-celeb, or believe your drunk uncle’s rant about gun control? Science Vs has an ep for that.
Stuff You Should Know ~ Charles (Chuck) Bryant, Josh Clark ~ If you’ve ever wanted to know about champagne, satanism, the Stonewall Uprising, chaos theory, LSD, El Nino, true crime and Rosa Parks, then look no further. Josh and Chuck have you covered.
The Daily Zeitgeist ~ Jack O’Brien, Miles Gray ~ There’s more news and less comprehension today than any historical period that didn’t involve literal witch trials, and trying to stay on top of it all can feel like playing a game of telephone with 30 people, except everyone’s speaking at the same time and like a third of them are openly racist for some reason. From Cracked co-founder Jack O’Brien, THE DAILY ZEITGEIST is stepping into that fray with some of the funniest and smartest comedic and journalistic minds around. Jack will spend up to an hour every weekday sorting through the events and stories driving the headlines, to help you find the signal in the noise, with a few laughs thrown in for free.
