LOVE this podcast!

Always been so interested in travel hacking and the podcast makes it so fun to listen and learn about!

Hopefully it gets better with explanation

I like the hosts but after listening to the first episode I would love more explanation on some of the hacking. There was too much reference to check the previous Daily Drop email newsletters and assumptions that the listener has previous travel hacking experience. I will keep listening hoping it gets better.
