Mom-safe audiobooks for a car trip?

Tomorrow, I will be driving my mother on a ten-hour road trip. I desperately need some entertainment for the drive, but most of the stuff I already possess for my own entertainment would annoy, offend, or disturb my mom.
My mom is very religiously and politically conservative. I am looking for audiobooks, podcasts, etc. that we could listen to in the car and that we could both enjoy. It doesn't have to be 100% squeaky clean but nothing worse than a PG movie or network television show like NCIS.
Bonus if it is (a) long (b) available for free as a podcast or I can use an Audible credit to get it (c) entertaining enough to keep me alert as I drive. I'm thinking maybe clean humor, English-style "cozy" mysteries, heartwarming but not cloying books like All Creatures Great and Small
, something along those lines.
