Very good travel podcast

Overall this is an interesting and informative podcast. I like the format and the guests are usually very knowledgeable. There is a wide range of locations reviewed within the catalog of the podcast. My one complaint (And I apologize for mentioning this because once you notice this, you can’t unhear it and it will dive you crazy) is that the host Chris says “okay” a lot! I know it’s a little thing, but it is definitely annoying. However, the content and overall quality of the podcast helps you look past this.

Good show

Could you consider doing an updated episode about Newfoundland, Nova Scotia or PEI? Our family is planning a trip this summer and the last episodes about those places have been several years. Thank you !
