Funny, factual, (in)frequent

My only complaint is that Cranky doesn’t do an episode every week. One of the few travel industry podcasts/blogs not oriented around maximizing credit card signups. Cranky has a firm grasp on the vertical and talks about it with a humour only an insider could have - yet manages to keep the content accessible to the lay person.

They deserve your follow and time.

Can we get to 1000 five star reviews?

Well they asked. I helped.

It’s a really good podcast.

Fantastic

Love the insight and perspective on the airline industry! Would love to hear more/learn more about GDSs. The volume is a bit low on some of the episodes, but still enjoyable. Thanks guys. See you at Cranky Dorkfest!
