Motorcycle Travel Experiences and Skills

I’ve been listening for a little over a year, and ARR has taken me places I will probably never go, to experience things I’ll never get to experience. I absolutely love hearing the experiences of various travelers in almost real time, as he interviews people while they are traveling.

Jim Martin is one of the best interviewers I have ever heard because he asks the questions most people would never dare to ask. He also keeps the interview light on technical jargon, asking the guests to break things down in orderly, understandable bites.

This is a high quality, professionally produced podcast, with an amazingly good selection of bumper music (to match the content that week) and excellent guests. If you ride a motorcycle and are looking for something more than just another podcast about how to buy another bike or buy more stuff for your bike, this is for you. This podcast is about 60% interview with travelers, 30% riding skills, and less than 10% about “stuff.”

When he does a segment on “stuff” it is usually very informative, has an interview with the manufacturer, and includes first hand experience with the use of the product. For example he did a couple of segments on Satellite communication/tracking devices that included an interview with GEOS, the global call center that facilitates your rescue if you use the service. Those episodes were easily worth the (free) admission charge for the ride.

The whole show is light on advertising with about 3 minutes of advertising broken into 3 segments near the beginning, middle, and end of the show. The podcast is mostly funded through donations.
