Age Specific / Adult Children

Whether in transit to your next family destination, heading on a solo hike through a scenic trail or waiting to connect to your next flight, there’s always some travel downtime to fill. Even if you need something to immerse yourself in for quick escape from the family — there’s nothing like an interesting podcast to pass the time. With innumerable topics, hosts and podcast styles, you can truly find something covering anything of interest.

 

Stock up on a few new downloads to occupy your ears on your fall excursions. Share with the family in the car and get into one together, or keep them to yourself for a little leg up on the dinner conversation.

 

Fun for All Ages

 

Stuff to Blow Your Mind

Enjoy fun facts? The Stuff to Blow Your Mind podcast is for you. From the guys who brought you How Stuff Works, this podcast is a great way to keep your mind engaged and learn a few new interesting facts while riding the rails or walking to a meeting.

 

Best for Teens and Older

 

Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend

If you know and love the famously tall redhead’s late night show, Conan O’Brien’s podcast is for you. With the casually loose conversational flow of friends chatting, but with the interesting tidbits of a Hollywood interview, this show is an easy listen for almost all ages. The teens and adult children interested in comedy and entertainment can easily find a guest that piques their interest. Just download your favorite guests and relax, Conan does all the work.

 

Root of Evil

A list of podcasts isn’t complete without mention of a true crime number, and Root of Evil is a must for thrill-seekers. Maybe for the older kids, just based on sorted content, Root of Evil is a dark and interesting listen. This podcast, produced by TNT and Cadence13, follows the true story of the Hodel family and the Black Dahlia —  think the I am the Night series with Chris Pine.

 

Adult Children

 

Best Friends with Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata

When you want to just relax and not have to think, this podcast is a great escape for mature podcast listeners. Listen to two comedian best friends chatting away about everything from relationships and workout classes, gossip about other friends and tell personal stories. Really anything you would talk to your hilarious best friend about, this show covers and then some. If you find yourself wanting more, Nicole Byer has another show, Why Won’t You Date Me, that might be right up your alley.
