Brook R. D. ,

Love the podcast!

I have been listening nonstop about a month. I am 40 and love to travel and love learning about all the places you all have been!

E.V.ddie ,

It used to a good show not anymore

Not that much actual and useful travel information

Britty June ,

Less business plugs, please

I started listening a few years ago. I still love the episodes that are actually about your travels, and I get it, covid, no one is traveling. BUT! Even before covid, the episodes were trending more toward your business. I know you have to advertise your brand, but I miss living vicariously through you guys!
