Commuting is often referred to as dead time, but listening to an engaging podcast can make it a much more enjoyable experience.

Here are our picks for podcasts to kill those commuter blues.



If you're having a bad day, it’s comforting to know that someone, somewhere is having a worse day than you.

This unique podcast is made up of people reading out embarrasing stories from their own childhood diaries, in front of an audience of strangers.

Named in iTunes’ ‘Best Podcasts of 2015’, Mortfied is laugh-out-loud funny.

Football Weekly

The Guardian’s Football Weekly is the perfect fix for commuters passionate about the beautiful game.

James Richardson and the ‘pod squad’ discuss the weekend’s football action, alongside the latest news and transfer gossip.

If cricket is more up your street, then try Simon Hughes’ new podcast The Analyst – Inside Cricket
