Whether you’re road tripping, flying, or hanging around home, there are a number of great podcasts you can listen to this summer.
If you love true crime stories, “Atlanta Monster” and “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark “should be next on your listen list.
Fiction fans can check out “LeVar Burton Reads,” and people who like interviews should hear “It’s Been a Minute.”
History buffs will enjoy “Sidedoor,” and celebrity followers should listen to “Armchair Expert.”

Summer road trips are good for a lot of things: watching scenic landscapes as you wander between states, belting along to epic playlists, and eating roadside fast food (guilt free). They’re also good for binge-listening to some of the imaginative and thought-provoking podcasts that are being produced across the country.

A big plus of podcasts is that they represent a true democratization of the storytelling space—anyone with a smartphone or voice recorder (and an internet connection) can make one. But that freedom is a double-edged sword: There is a lot to sift through to get to the quality shows, and no semblance of a rating system exists, so it can be difficult to determine what is audience appropriate if you’re listening in a group.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
