Redeeming the drive

I really want a driverless car. I’ve never been much of a car guy. I drive a 2006 Honda Accord with 100K+ miles. I’m actually not really sure how many miles it has because I don’t pay that close of attention. See, not a car guy. I just want a reliable and inexpensive way to get from Point A to Point B.

Me with headphones, presumably listening to a podcast. (I’m totally going to start ripping off Paul Singh’s style of posting pictures of himself doing mundane things only slightly related to his post. For example,¬†here he is checking his email.)

So why do I want a fancy driverless car? Because I don’t want to have to think about driving. People say not to be distracted by texting while driving. I think the driving is the distraction from my texting. But until I get my driverless car, I fill any drive time by listening to podcasts. Here are two of my favorites in each category I have.

Start of the day: These daily podcasts are the first up on the first drive of the day.

Learn: this is my junk drawer of informative podcasts

Investing: these two have been the most helpful in getting familiar with this new investing world I inhabit.

Tech: trying hard to remain current with the basic software development and tech business issues

Kids: when my kids are in the car they prefer these to dad’s boring stuff
