So what do writers/readers listen to on road trips?
I've driven cross-country with loud-music-the-whole-way, which probably cost me some hearing. Won't do that again.
I like the idea of audiobooks, but have trouble following them, especially fiction.
I've played radio roulette, trying to catch local radio stations at each stop. Perhaps valuable as a sociological experiment, but probably just brain deadening if practiced too long.
I like college-type courses on tape, and have listened to a solid day of lectures before. I felt pretty enlightened, though I'm not sure there was much retention.
Now I usually use podcasts, since they're free, widely available and come in enough topics to keep things interesting.
Any magic secrets to the perfect road trip soundtrack?
