Nowadays, technology allows us to share information across the globe like it’s nothing. We are now able to share our stories, experiences, advice, and knowledge with anyone on Earth. And with this increase in connection and new-style storytelling, many have used different platforms to create their own voice.
We are very aware by now of all the YouTubers and Instagrammers out there who share their daily (and too often too perfect) lives with the world. But in the last couple of years, another huge trend has hit everyone’s phones, tablets or computers. The podcasts.
You have probably heard of them by now and you might have even listened to a couple of them. But, honestly, there are so many out there right now, that finding one that fits your interests might seem like an impossible mission. They have podcasts for true crime, for love counseling, for comedy, for news, etc. Besides, it also seems like every famous person who wants to keep being someone, must have their own podcast!
This trend benefits many people too. And someone who spends so much time on the road as truck drivers can find great joy in listening to something else besides pop music and audiobooks. Podcasts, after all, seem to have resuscitated the spirit of those old radio shows that yielded to the invention of the TV. Besides, the best part is that anyone can start their own! You only need a computer and a mic.
So, we have done some research to find the best trucking podcasts out there, so any truck driver or truck lover can find some comfort in listening to someone else’s adventures behind the wheel. Now, don’t forget to download your podcast app so you can download all of these to listen while on the road.
