About a year ago when we moved from one side of town to the other my commute went from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. A 30 minute commute really isn’t that long when compared to the national average but it’s all relative, right? I was worried about my longer commute time, hoping it wouldn’t be a total drag on my day (or life) or make me regret our move.
Enter podcasts. And the miracle that is Bluetooth.
I got a new (used) car this past fall with built in Bluetooth. I theoretically knew what Bluetooth was before I got this car but didn’t ever really understand how nice of a feature it was. I discovered it accidentally when I hopped in the car and my iTunes playlist I had listened to earlier, with headphones during a run, starting playing over my car’s speakers. Magic!
I started listening to podcasts on my commutes to and from work and it has made a huge difference. No more annoying morning DJs. I felt like a multi-tasking, productive genius by the time I got to work.
