So i've started a new job where I have alot of time commuting. Like nearly 3 hours a day. I want to use my time wisely. So im reading on the way to work, then doing some courses on the way home on the computer. But I also have a 50 min of walking to fill my time. I have tried out various podcasts but they dont seem to be cutting the mustard. They're all a bit shit.

What I wanna know is, are there any good audiobooks worth listening to, or talks or something. Something informative and valuable. Anything that I can listen to while walking rather then just listening to music. Im really eager to try upskill on as much as possible.

Cheers

    I'm all about the Joe Rogan podcast myself. It's the only one I listen to.

    What appeals to you guys about that podcast? His dilettante approach to topics? I mean, the dude is funny and has legitimately great guests, but I'm surprised that he has the following he does on this forum. There is a strong correlation between listeners of Rogan and Trump supporters for a reason.

    Anyway, I also recommend Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast. Which airs on Mondays and Thursdays (called the Monday Morning Thursday Afternoon Just Before Friday podcast). He's another dipshit like Joe Rogan (in fact, they're friends). But a little sharper. You'd recognize him as the red headed hitman from Breaking Bad.

    You would of course have to build a window for when you walk and holdnit at arm's length.

    Facebook has been ramming that down my feed a lot recently, always thought it missed the point of reading a book, like watching trailers for a films instead of watching them to save time
