Whether I’m flying to a conference in Sydney or heading home to reunite with Winston in San Francisco, one thing that keeps me sane throughout the time zones is an entertaining playlist. Since this past month has been a whirlwind of airports and adventure, I wanted to share with you what keeps me grounded while in the air:
This American Life – This podcast never fails to make me laugh, cry, and think – sometimes all in the same hour-long program! I’ve been listening to TAL for years, and I never get sick of it. Ira Glass is my hero!
Radiolab – I never miss this smart and thought-provoking podcast!
Regina Spektor – One of my all-time favorite albums is Soviet Kitsch. It always transports me to a different place, which is important if you’re sitting next to a screaming baby on the plane!
Katie Herzig – She’s one of my new favorite artists. I’ve been listening to her album The Waking Sleep on repeat.
That Dog – Lately, I’ve been listening to lots of 90’s girl rock. Retreat from the Sun is such a great album, it always gives me energy! I like to listen to it and sing along while I pack.
The Beatles – A classic! Revolver is my favorite Beatles’ album — I’ve listened to it hundreds of times and it still blows me away.
70’s disco – It always gets a bad rap, but my disco playlist never fails to put me in a good mood!
I’m always looking for new recommendations for the road. What’s your go-to track when traveling?
