Stuck in Traffic? Use the time to listen to these invaluable podcasts!

One habit I picked up in my startup life is reading business books. I started slowly, and then grew to read them voraciously.

But when I transferred houses from one which was a stone’s throw from the office to one which was an hour and a half away, my reading time got stymied.

This was how I introduced myself to the world of podcasts. I would download podcasts from the web, upload them into my mobile, and listen away: 3-4 hours a day sometimes in the traffic. Great, wonderful learning – during a time when there is minimal distraction.

Want to get started?

Let me introduce you to one of the most elaborate startup resources available online: The Stanford Entrepreneurial Lecture Series.

This is a series of podcasts from some of the most renowned startup founders in the world, talking about a variety of topics concerning entrepreneurship.

You can download the podcasts freely here. You can view the videos here, but I don’t recommend that while driving 🙂

Some of the podcasts you can start with:

A) Unlearn Your MBA

B) Honest Advice on Starting a Company

C) A Devotion to New Ideas

But believe me, almost all the entries are worth listening to.

If you do garner any concrete, meaningful insights from these sources, do share them below.

Happy learning people!

  1. Sure beats listening to love radio and yes fm while in commute!

    There are just some speakers who make me sleepy like Eckhart Tolle. =(

    While in commute, I’d rather read a book or watch an instructional video.

    But yes, the objective is to be productive!

  2. You said it bro. If I’m 2-3 hours a day on the road, that’s equivalent to 10-15 hours a week! As much as 60 hours a month!

    Gotta be productive. I’ve learned to do a lot of phone calls in the car, as well.

  3. Hi Peter,

    Thanks for sharing, am already downloading the podcast now.


    1. Hey Bryan Lee!

      I’m sure you’ll enjoy them! I see you’re a fan of Suster, too. His podcast there was cool.

      Interesting blog bro – nice combination of running and running startups, so I’m sure you’re a Feld fan as well 🙂

      More power!
