Recommend me some good podcasts, audiobooks, etc.

I'll be driving ~30 hours in a few weeks and then another ~30 hours during return a few weeks after that. I've done this drive maybe a dozen times over the past several years and usually drive 14-16 hours a day including my gas stops. I typically listen to whatever music I have downloaded, have Apple music so I stream some stuff, and also have DirectTV so I stream DirectTV Now to listen to news, etc. I also have Amazon Prime. I do not have XM. I am driving by myself so I can listen to whatever I want for however long I can keep interest in it. I'd like to hear your best suggestions.

I was going to post my interests but figured it would be better to get a wider array of recommendations. All I'll say is that it has to be interesting enough for me not to fall asleep (duh) or lose interest in after the first 15-30 minutes. I am not averse to paying for something good but would like to leverage what I already have if possible.

What say you??

Been a big fan of Imagination Theater’s Harry Niles radio broadcasts. Now it is completely “free” and available by many venues as shown above link. I play it on the YouTube Channel shown below:


The channel seems to remove the contents every two weeks and put new matter which I hate since I like listen to many episodes at a time!

I have been enjoying Joe Rogan's podcast and could recommend it.... But then again I have read a random comment somewhere saying that Joe Rogan is currently the worst human being on the planet. So I guess not for everyone. I find it more enjoyable when he has guests aside from the norm. Like guests with a scientific background.

Fantastic suggestions thus far -- keep them coming. Will definitely listen to some of the Rogan podcasts (found them on Apple Music). Also, yeah, can also stream youtube so will look forward to checking out things on there.

Got catch this one here shown below:
It is one of the best interviews of all time! They drink hard liquor! Talk about technology vs. mankind, how Elon functions, his projects, his cars, etc... Near the end, they smoke marijuana together too! It like listening to modern day Albert Einstein/Thomas Edison!
