Season 3 Episode 5! Top Down, Radio Up: Preparing Our Ultimate Road Trip Playlist With Great Tunes From Panic! At The Disco, Fleetwood Mac, Hozier and More

So what makes a good road trip song, anyhow? Is it how it sets the mood, from turning your foot to lead and causing you to race down a highway to maybe taking it slow and reflecting on how far you’ve come? Is it it’s maximum sing-a-long potential, whether or not you’re driving alone or with your best friends, exploring the country? Or is it just whether or not it’s about actually driving around? The gang are about to take a drive down the journey of what makes a good road trip anthem, and they’re taking you along for the ride. Better buckle up.
