You probably can’t watch a TV show while you’re camping, hiking or biking, but a listening device and some earbuds, though, can follow you anywhere. It’s easy as can be to put in your headphones and listen to the latest episodes of your favorite podcast.
Podcasts are a great way to help pass the time. You can download a few podcasts onto your phone so that if you can’t get to sleep, you’ll have something to do that doesn’t involve reading by headlamp.
