Check out these podcasts for the most unique stories, best advice, and funniest interviews.

The value of a good podcast is so underrated. They’re great for those of us who are always in the car… Our playlists get old every now and again, and we love the chance to learn more and get new ideas from fellow overlanders. Overland podcasts are awesome, but there are so many to choose from. How do you know which one to listen to? Check out this list for some of our favorite picks!

01/ The XOverland Podcast with Clay and Rachelle Croft

Expedition Overland founders Clay and Rachelle Croft started this podcast as an extension of their awesome YouTube channel.

03/ Citizen J Podcast with Jillian Rebekah

A while back, we got news that famed female overlander Jillian Rebekah was starting a podcast, and we were so excited! Since we talked about her last, Jillian has grown her podcast like crazy. In the post few months, she’s featured talks with cowboys, bladesmiths, athletes, and more. The collection of badasses on this show never seems to end, and we love it.

05/ Budget Overland with Jay Tiegs and Benji Ward

We know overlanding can get expensive. That’s why Jay and Benji, who are both experienced overlanders, started this podcast. They offer great advice on overlanding without breaking the bank, vehicle builds, and adventuring out of your comfort zone.

06/ Anderson Overland with Joey Anderson

There’s one best keyword to decribe the Anderson Overland podcast: authentic. Joey brings a ton of great first-hand experience as an overlander and outdoorsman, and shares those experiences in a super lighthearted way. Most recently, Joey hit the road with his wife Robyn, their two children, ages 1 and 13, camping off-grid for a whole month. Wondering how they pulled it off? Check out the latest episode.

Steve and Ian of the Total Offroad Podcast keep their focus on exploring the awesomeness of overlanding and off-roading.

09/ Camp Monsters by REI Co-op

This podcast is a great one for sitting around the campfire at the end of a long day of fun. It’s quite different from the rest of the podcasts on this list. Instead of overlanding stories and adventure advice, these are campfire stories in the way we heard them as kids. Keep the spooky campfire stories going this fall with inspiration from this podcast.
