Top 10 Outdoor Podcasts

Picture 45

As a follow up to last weeks top 10 new outdoor iPhone apps, the following is a list of ten of my favorite outdoor related podcasts. Some are perfect for passing the time on a long flight while others are great for listening to in the car. All are perfect for helping you experience the outdoors when you find yourself currently stuck indoors.
