7 Pop-Culture Podcasts That'll Make Your Holiday Travel Actually Fun This Year
We can all agree: Traveling for the holidays is not fun. The airports are packed, you’re exhausted, and all you want to do is put your headphones on or pick up a good read and tune out the bustling crowd around you. If you’re on the hunt for something to keep you entertained during the journey, we’ve certainly got you covered with suggestions for movies and TV (try these Netflix favorites before they leave in January), books (we recommend these bestsellers), and music (we have a killer holiday playlist). But if you want something to really make the time go by, give podcasts a try. They’re the perfect travel companion because you can easily download a few before your Wi-Fi-less flight, all you need is a phone and a set of headphones, and there are so many available that you’re guaranteed to find a perfect fit no matter your mood. And for those who love pop-culture as much as us at Obsessed, here are seven we suggest checking out.
