A hot topic here at Sense HQ is how much time we spend on our commute into work, and how easily it can turn into wasted, mind-numbing minutes.

The conversation then turned to solving this waste of precious time and next thing you know, we were swapping podcast recommendations. Here are some great suggestions from the team to try out on your commute.

Desert Island Discs

“The best thing about it is Kirsty, the presenter. She is a MASTER interviewer. I love the diversity of interviewee and the perspective you get on their wider life outside what they are well known for. It can be humbling and inspiring listening when you get a good one.” – Emma

The Allusionist

“This podcast is all about language (fascinating stuff!). An episode to look out for is – To Err Is Human – which looks at how mistakes and human error has helped the English language evolve and digs into the etymology words that wouldn’t exist without human error.” – Neil

Stuff You Should Know

“Like going down the rabbit hole on random topics? This is the podcast for you. A few personal favourites include “How LSD Works” and “Dr Seuss: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.” I just love the way you can be drawn in and be completely absorbed. And then all of a sudden, you’re at your stop and it’s time to go. Great for collecting random, useless facts to share with friends!” – Courtney

The Psychology Podcast

“I like this podcast because I don’t usually come across these topics and ideas in my day to day life. This type of stuff is normally buried away in academic research papers. This podcasts make that information easily accessible; I learn a lot from the episodes.” – Alex

What Bitcoin Did

“I’m really into Bitcoin / Fin-tech podcasts at the moment and this one is currently my favourite. I like it because the host interviews a wide range of experts in the field; from traders and miners to investors and developers. The flow of the episodes is a pleasure to follow.”- Emi
