3 Podcasts You’ll Love

50% of American adults will be traveling this year. As you queue up in airports, sit in the car, or find you’ve got some time in a new location – how are you spending it?

Grab a good pair of earbuds and add these podcasts to your playlist.

Podcasts are also a great way to accompany a long walk and help it feel a bit less taxing, keeping your mind on the story rather than the miles.

If you’ve never listened to a good podcast, this is the perfect time to start. Not only can they help keep you mentally engaged and informed, they can open up your personal experience to connect with others’ stories.

We found 3 podcasts we know you’ll love listening to as you travel this holiday season.


Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus

You know her as one of the most successful sitcom actresses ever, with award-winning turns on Seinfeld and Veep, but Louis-Dreyfus wants to know why older women like her get less of a voice as they age.

In these 10 incredible episodes, she sits down with some incredible women and learns how they’ve lived full and meaningful lives.

You’ll hear interviews with Jane Fonda, Fran Lebowitz, Carol Burnett, Diane von Furstenberg, and more.
