    Episode 8 (season finale) - A Trip Down Gate 7 Memory Lane

    Episode 8 (season finale) - A Trip Down Gate 7 Memory Lane

    Welcome to episode 8 - our season finale of Unclaimed Baggage with Tori & T!


    Boy, we've had a blast creating this podcast, and we hope you've enjoyed it too. We will be back with season 2: a new and improved format, after a short break. 


    But for now, we bring you this episode titled 'A Trip Down Gate 7 Memory Lane'. Before reminiscing about our favourite and least favourite moments of working at Gate 7, the ever-popular F* You COVID news is back. Tori schools Tristan on what an 'Eshay' is (who is the real Aussie here?!) and we both discuss being stranded out at sea with only a blow up mattress with an esky to your name (VERY Aussie), plus some pretty weird habits of other countries. 


    As we look back on our time at Gate 7, it's fair to say there have been many ups... and also some downs. It's also worth pointing out that while T has left Gate 7, Tori has to be careful what she says as is still there - she just likes to join in. 


    Enjoy!

    Episode 7: Best & Worst Love-Cations and Life Talks With Tori's Dad

    Episode 7: Best & Worst Love-Cations and Life Talks With Tori's Dad

    This week we're talking about luuuuuuurve. Tori & T couldn't get their shit together in time to record on Valentine's Day as planned, however decided that the theme should stay.


    No F* You COVID news this week... quite frankly, we're over it, plus we wanted to give our special star guest more air time. It'll be back next week, with twice as many hilarious travel tales. 


    In Tori & T's Unclaimed Baggage discussion, Tori shares her list of the top five romantic destinations, including a very questionable number 1 which T can't quite believe, and T shares what he deems to be the top five unromantic destinations in the world (0:00 - 26:55). 


    26:55-1:14: Tori & T welcome a VERY special guest for this week's destination spotlight.... Tori (or should we say, Victoria)'s Dad. Introducing... the legendary Tim Goddard, or Mr Goddard, as Tristan insists on calling him (as with every 'British Gentleman' that he meets). Tim tells the other two T's why you should always persevere when it comes to the love of your life, the disaster that he found himself on his actual wedding day, his fear of flying, misleading UK foods, and his favourite destinations in the UK (there are many...).

    Episode 6: Industry Events - When One Freebie is Never Enough & Big Roh's Kitchen

    This week we're talking industry events and freebies... because who doesn't love a good freebie?! 


    Tori messes up her own segment, but regains herself as she puts T through his paces in a quiz to decipher cryptic international travel phrases in F-off COVID Travel News (2:37-16:30).


    Tori and T discuss the highs and lows of industry events including travel agents' love for a good ballpoint pen (or 50), death by PowerPoint, T's awesome truck driving skills, and Tori's obsession with arancini balls (16:55-40:20).


    Our star guest this week (40:16-1:04:35) is Rohan Moss - or 'Big Roh' as he's better known as. A travel industry legend and now cook-extraordinaire, is there anything Big Roh can't do?! He tells Tori & T about his YouTube cooking show 'Big Roh's Kitchen', which is a place to go for awesome food and wine inspiration. Everyone drools over a discussion of Southern USA food, including Virginian Blue Crabs, and Tennessee BBQ.
