Four Podcasts to Make The Most Of Your Commute

Metro Detroit has some of the worst traffic in the country, so much that it’s in the top 25 Most Congested Cities by Inrix! Unfortunately, it’s going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better with the planned closure of major throughway I-696 this spring. Morning radio can get tiring, so why not make the most of your commute by listening to inspiring podcasts that will give your workday a boost. Here are some of our favorites.

The 5AM Miracle: If you’re trying to dominate your day, the 5AM Miracle is for you. Created by The Formula Free Time author Jeff Sanders, this podcast focuses on healthy habits, personal development and of course early mornings. One must-listen episode features Broadway actress Stephanie Gibson where she discusses how she manages to do anything in addition to eight shows a week!   

The Tim Ferriss Show: Tim is the author of the famed book ‘The 4-Hour Workweek’. Tim interviews interesting people and discusses the ways that they have overcome challenges. A favorite of mine is when he interviews Sir Richard Branson, Vince Vaughn, Maria Sharapova and Caroline Paul about ways they have overcome fear.

Back to Work: Hosted by creators Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin, this podcast focuses on productivity and communication. They often do a deeper dive on topics versus just quick solutions to provide an in-depth understanding. While the topics can get serious this duo serves up enough hilarity to keep you entertained your whole drive. A favorite episode, titled ‘Dumb Ohio Mouth’ digresses into how to handle negative workplace chatter.

The Productivitist Podcast: Hosted by productivity strategist Mike Vardy, this podcast specifically focuses on productivity strategies and workflow to help you get more out of your day. This would be a great place to start if you are struggling giving your 2018 goals momentum.
