After discovering a world of podcasts this summer, I found myself looking forward to the once dreaded daily commute. With over 100,000 free podcasts that you can download to iPod, you’re sure to find great podcasts that will entertain parents and kids on the road.
Here are some of our favourite podcasts that will have you looking for excuses to drive the kids around. You can find them all in the iTunes store under “Podcasts”.
