I have a long (11 hour each way) drive coming up (NY to NC) next week. I am a pretty seasoned distance driver (many two-day TX to Toronto drives), but I am going by myself (with 2 dogs) and I need something to keep me sane and awake. I would love to have some This American Life or CarTalk or the like podcasts to listen to but...while I am nothing like a tech/net n00b, I confess that I don't really know how this podcast thing works to get past episodes. Please hope me!

I have an iPod Nano and a Droid X smartphone. I would also appreciate suggestions for audiobooks (funny, thriller, mystery, scifi, British a plus - PTerry and Harry Potter are already planned for) although there have been several great threads about those that I am mining.
TL:DR version: help me figure out how podcasts would best work with the equipment I have, especially for "back issues," and suggest what I might like to listen to. Go!
