Truckers can spend up to 11 hours a day driving. It’s not uncommon for them to spend several days at a time away from home. With truckers spending so many hours on the road, life can get lonely. Just like any other career, trucking can get boring after a while. Listening to podcasts is a good way to keep your mind occupied and stay alert on the road.
