Interesting one. Would like show notes with lists and links.

Really like the way things are described peppered with local stories and history. Would prefer to see lists of places and links to his blog and others in the show notes. I couldn’t find anything for the Slovenia episode, for example.

Best destination travel podcast!

I have been a longtime listener to AT. Whenever I’m planning a trip this podcast is where I always start. The guest singers bring places to life and I’m always adding to my bucket list. Best destination travel podcast out there!

I Like It, But Not the California Comparions

I really enjoy hearing about different places around the world. I like the format of the show too.

But Chris is consistently belittling the places guests talk about. If someone says there are wineries in their location, Chris hassss to mention that he’s from California and ask “but how’s the wine?” I’ve heard this many times! In the Cleveland episode, Chris just haddd to mention that shark tunnels aren’t unique to Cleveland. Why does he have to put down places?
