Truck drivers have tons of behind-the-wheel listening time. While you may have a solid rotation of playlists, audio books, or podcasts already on board, there may be room for something new. Here are some of our 2022 podcast recommendations for truck drivers:

The Lead Pedal Podcast

With over 700 episodes made specifically for truck drivers, The Lead Pedal Podcast with Bruce Outridge is a cult classic.

The aim of the podcast, according to Outridge, is to help CDL-A truck drivers like you improve your career.

While this is a rookie podcast, launched in 2021, Driver Stories has the relatable trucking content you’re looking for.
