I listened to 2,810 minutes of podcasts from Sunday morning when I left Barrington, RI to when I landed in Warwick, RI on Wednesday morning. That works out to 46 hours and 50 minutes. About 2,550 minutes (42 hours and 30 minutes) of that was over the two day drive down. I was able to do this thanks to Overcast, an iOS app that does some fun things with increasing audio playback speeds. In terms of "real time," I spent about 24+ hours listening. Again, thanks Overcast!
The heroes of my road trip were Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller of Effectively Wild. I thoroughly enjoyed the 16 episodes of EW that I listned to for a total of 613 minutes. The average length of an EW episode was 40 minutes. The second most listened to pod was Reconcilable Differences with 384 minutes. Amazingly, that was 3 episodes. Hello Internet comes takes third place with 328 minutes in 3 episodes. The shortest was an episode of the Disney Dish with Jim Hill about the Animal Kingdom was a lean 18 minutes. Data is below the jump.
Since Matt Houser asked, my favorite three podcast episodes were Effectively Wild 913 (featuring Rany and Joe), Orlando Tourism Report 78 (an excellent interview with Ron Schneider about playing Dreamfinder), and Radio Westeros 25. The only episode/show I wouldn't recommend would be CBS Fantasy Baseball Today. It is very bad.
One final little note. While figuring out my drive time, I checked my phone logs. I spent about four hours on the phone.
GALLIMAUFRY! Our first topic this week is what properties or companies we believe that Disney should try to acquire. The second topic is salary cap style game about how we would spend an hour in the Magic Kingdom. Finally and drawing inspiration from Effectively Wild's The only rule is that it has to work, we discuss how we would manage a small, independent amusement park.
How would you guys plan your hour if you received one free hour in the park with no the guest? Here are the rules: You must do at least 3 attractions and eat one meal. Here’s the catch, anything in Tier 1 you must wait 15 minutes before going on the ride. Anything in Tier 2 you must wait 10 minutes and anything in Tier 3 is no wait. Any place you want to eat will have your meal ready for you when you arrive. We’ll say 15 minutes to eat.

Tier 1 - 15 minute wait
Big Thunder Mountain- 7 minutes
Peter Pans Fligh- 3 minutes
Space Mountain - 10 minutes
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train- 3 minutes
Splash Mountain- 10 minutes
