Podcasts are perfect for daily commutes, but if you’re facing a drive so long that a test cricket match could begin and end before you reach your destination, audiobooks are better.

Not all audiobooks! I’ve had the chance to explore just about every literary genre while covering nine Southeastern states for The Food Section and wouldn’t recommend tuning in to experimental fiction or theoretical science. If a printed book opens with pages of maps and family trees, it’s probably best to stick with the format that the author intended.
