There’s something special about tuning in to an inspirational podcast while gazing out of the window during a long plane, train or car ride. Travel (in general, not just while in transit) provides the space to pause and soak in new ideas. So the next time you’re on a soul-searching trip, or just need some new motivation, hit download on a few of these.

The Lively Show
Ready to live the life you truly want to live? Jess Lively is a world traveler and conscious living advocate.

The short episodes are perfect for listening as you’re getting ready in the morning or just before drifting off to sleep.
The Tim Ferriss Show

The World Wanderers
Just like here at Wanderwell, The World Wanderers podcast is about much more than travel itself; it’s about how travel can help you live your best life. Ryan and Amanda, the couple behind the weekly series, interview travelers of all kinds to bring you inspiration far beyond what to do and see in a destination.
Slow Your Home
Simplifying. Slowing down. Giving up the glorification of busy-ness to lead a more meaningful life surrounded by what truly matters. There’s a reason slow, intentional living has become a super hot topic these days; it’s necessary in today’s world. If you want to bring more slow into your life, this is the podcast for you.
10% Happier with Dan Harris
Dan Harris is a former NBC news anchor who famously had a panic attack on-air, an event that led him to meditation, and eventually, a book and podcast on the topic.

It’s a great listen for those pondering the bigger picture and how to embrace mindfulness in everyday life.
Pursuit With Purpose
