Is audible worth the cost? I though Amazon did free audio books with prime membership but it seems that's not the case anymore

It's worth it if you actually use it consistently. I'd start with podcasts since they're free/there's tvs on the cross country flights so you can just watch movies the whole time

Consider the Lobster by David Foster Wallace. Tech geeks and hipsters worship everything he wrote. If you're dealing with a new age CEO that likes his company's "chill" atmosphere, mentioning DFW will instantly give you a 20% higher allowance on expenses

Podcasts like planet money and serial. Audiobooks I like audible millennium trilogy was really good.
