A Chat about what’s happening in the travel world

This roundtable format with a panel of formidably experienced travelers as hosts is both fun and informative. Current events and travel picks sandwich a conversation with a different guest each episode. Love it!

One of the best shows

Knowledge hosts and interesting guests talk about all things travel related. Great travel tips stir in with a bit of humor, a great show. Never miss an episode since I discovered it.
Just remember, as Chris said a few times, it is This Week in Travel not every week in travel.
