Recently I’ve started loading my MP3 player with podcasts that I listen to when I drive to and from work. This is an excellent replacement for mainstream radio; I can find podcasts discussing the topics I’m interested in, and use this ‘dead-time’ to learn something new. Also, the radio in my car doesn’t work. In addition, there is often a lot of traffic, so a quiet car can drive anyone mad.
So, if your radio doesn’t work, you’re in your car and you spend fourty minutes on something that should only take ten if it weren’t for all those other bastards who also decided to drive to work at EXACTLY 07:45 (who are these people??) – AND you’ve got an MP3 player – then this might be useful for you:
Here are some audio I enjoy listening to while angry and frustrated in my car:
- Diggnation– they say: “a weekly tech/web culture show based on the top digg.com social bookmarking news stories.” I say: this is awesome. I mean, a concept where two guys are drinking beer, having fun and discussing tech just makes me happy.
- ITConversations.com – Lots of IT stuff
- JavaZone 2005 mp3’s – From JavaZone in Oslo
- LearnOutLoud – Haven’t checked them out properly yet, but they might have something..

Are you admitting to be on of those people that drivers around with their headphones and completely oblivious to the traffic around them causing the traffic jams and accidents? You are the cause of of the road rage…aghhh…now move because it is already 7:46. Oh and thanks for the links ;)
