Long commutes suck. 2017 is the first year in my working life I’ve had to regularly travel 15+ hours each and every week. Once I became aware of how much time that actually was it became imperative to at least attempt to be productive (One can only surf twitter and reddit so much, who knew?). In addition to my reading list, I decided I would give some podcasts a try after plenty of recommendations. There’s so many good ones out there, but these ones currently have my attention and are great at challenging my preexisting beliefs:
