What are Layover Episodes? If you think of our new episodes released every Thursday as nonstop flights, Layover Episodes are like connections between your departure and arrival airports. Instead of having to wait until you arrive at your final destination to stretch your legs and eat something more than a packet of peanuts, layovers give you a chance to walk around or get a snack during your journey.

Layover Episodes will pop up on occasion in between our regularly scheduled Thursday episodes to provide some mini stories, discussion on current events, or other surprises to make the wait for new episodes a little easier. And since our layovers will never lead to flight delays or lost luggage, we hope you look forward to them as much as we do!

Here are the Layover Episodes we've released so far.
