Our Favorite Podcasts for Your Commute

Claudia Pors
Claudia Pors December 27, 2019 Claudia is a Business Development Manager of Residential Services at Arlington Transportation Partners. She has been enjoying her morning reading time on the Metro and multi-modal afternoons since 2014.

ATP Takeaway: We all know the #ATPFam are voracious readers but some of us are also avid podcast listeners and have excellent recommendations.

At Arlington Transportation Partners, we love a good story. When we’re in between books we like to stay informed and entertained with great podcasts.

So, load up your queue, plug in your headphones, and join us in the virtual living room of podcasts.

Reply All

Genre: Technology, comedy, journalism

Why I listen: Reply All’s overarching theme is to uncover the mysteries of technology snafus like obscure memes, stolen Snapchat accounts, or weird robocalls. Plus, the hosts have contagious laughs. - Christy

Three Keywords: Memes, pop culture, investigation

Christy also recommends:

  • By the Book
  • Dr. Death

Limetown

Genre: Fiction

Why I listen: I love scripted podcasts, and this is definitely one of the best in that category. It keeps you on the edge of your seat as the mystery unfolds. - Erica

Three Keywords: Suspenseful, mystery, fiction

99% Invisible

Genre: Design, architecture

Why I listen: It’s part journalism, part love letter to human ingenuity and problem-solving. This podcast explores subjects like comic book speech bubbles, sidewalk curb cuts for wheelchairs, and dresses with pockets. - Claudia

Three Keywords: Investigation, design, nerdy

No Such Thing as a Fish

Genre: Comedy, but also useful random facts of the weeks brought to you by four British nerds.

Why I listen: It’s a short podcast, great for your commute, or your bus ride to the grocery store. You’ll learn some really obscure facts such as: one of the main reasons people failed to enroll into the US army during World War I is because the military required recruits to have a minimum of 6 teeth. - Fadi

Three Keywords: Funny, interesting, conversation-starter
