    What can I listen to in the car aside from the sound of the car and music. I'm going to try audio books, can anyone recommend anything else to listen to. Preferably something I can learn something from but without being heavy duty.

    thanks

    Language courses might be useful. My brother did this with french. It said something in french, translated it and said it again for him to repeat. He learned loads just by doing that to and from work. However, I am concerned that it could be very distracting and cause an accident so bear that in mind.
    Or you can get recordings of comedy radio shows or stand up comedy. Again, if you're laughing really hard you might crash.
    I have chemistry lectures that i listen to sometimes when i go for a walk; I'm sure if you look around you could find downloads for lectures on all sorts of subjects. BBC radio four often have informative programmes as well though it pays to consult a radio timetable first as many are boring enough to send you sleep and cause a crash.
    Good luck finding something.

    Radio 4! The comedy shows are so good, and it's very educational while not being too heavy duty.

    You could try some comedy programmes, perhaps not for learning though...

    Radio 4 comedy podcasts.

    It's just the best way to keep you entertained on long-haul drives if you're having to do it alone. On short journeys I find them a little too distracting though.

    Podcasts! There are thousands on iPlayer, for loaaaads of different areas of interest.

    If you don't have iPlayer I'm sure there are websites that can link you to some good podcasts.
