Default What do you like to listen to while walking/whatever?

While out walking Katalin it's been a variety of podcasts lately - Advertising/marketing break downs, Savage Love, science, and ALOT of Old time radio - mostly horror/sci fi/mystery dramas.

But music wise it's a smattering of 70's music, K-pop, "Malt shop" classics (Platters, Ronettes, Supremes, Dion and so on), C-pop, and the occasional classical piece.

I don't like walking in silence - my mind wanders off into unpleasant territory if I do so. And there's alot of things out there I'd really rather not hear...
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n!
We are such neighborly people, peaceful and sweet!
All except when we happen to meet.

Stories, Poetry, and Musings

Walking I usually have nothing in my ears, but for driving it's either new country, top 40 pop, or NPR. If the house is too quiet while internetting, I usually have the Imagine Dragons station on Pandora running in the background.

Nothing. I need to be able to hear oncoming cars/bikes/dogs to be able to avoid potential reactive situations.

Edit: In the car I channel surf between all the pop/alternative stations.

The birds. I really like hearing them sing.. LIsten for cars and possible loose dogs too. WIsh I couldn't hear people fighting, seems to be a great deal of that lately. Really tired of their arguements. wish they would shut their windows and keep it private.

Walking the dogs I need to stay alert for what's around me.

In the car it's the hard rock station.

I don't really listen to anything when walking my dog, I would get too distracted lol. But when I'm just walking by myself or when I'm at the gym I listen to my workout playlist or just put the iPhone on shuffle and I listen to whatever song is playing.

There is a CBC series called metamorphosis that I was downloading the podcasts for. Those are good for low-key walks.

When we are out in the country and I can afford to be really distracted, I'll watch YouTube videos on my iPhone! lol Nothing like listening to xfactor auditions while you're out in the middle of no where.
I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands.

With the dog? Nothing... I'm pretty sure she'd find it awful boring if I just walked with music on her walk.

nothing when walking the dogs because i need to be able to hear game moving. when i am running nothing because it is my "quiet time" when i am best able to hear spiritual guidance.
driving, the local high school station-no commercials and better playlist that ranges from80 to now and a heavy alternative bent, best station to hear social d
at home while studying, i listen to farzana naz & aryanna sayeed (although she sings too much dari & not enough pashto) on youtube
