The average person spends about 4 and a half hours a week on their commute to work. That’s roughly 200 hours a year! If you’re like me, you want to fill up that precious time with nerdy goodness. Whether you like dnd campaigns or learning about historical figures, these 5 nerdy podcasts will help liven up your commute!

The Adventure Zone

Want to learn how to play D&D? Or just listen in on a game? Join the hilariously funny McElroy brothers and their dad in their adventurous campaigns.

New to the dnd themselves, enjoy their quest to learn in their first episode, or jump ahead to their latest Wild West inspired campaign, “Dust". You can also choose from shorter story arcs that are about five episodes long!

Critical Role

If you haven't listened to Critical Role yet, then you are in for a treat! A team of voice actors play D&D in this hilariously funny, action packed and infamous series.

I suggest starting with Campaign 2, but only because it's THE best nerdy podcast I have ever listened to!
