‘Tis the Season

If you’re planning to travel this holiday season you’re likely to find yourself with a lot of time on your hands. So if you’re the driver and you’re tired of your own playlists or—if you’re a real masochist—the radio, we’ve corralled a few of our favorites for you to listen to, both fiction and nonfiction. And if you’re not the one at the wheel, we’ve got a couple of things you could watch. Because what’s better for traveling than serial content, which is a lot easier to drop when you finally reach your destination (and pick up later when you need to recuperate from having to deal with all those comments about your job and weight and, well, literally everything else)?
