Best Show for the Hobby

Greg and Nick do a fantastic job. I commute an hour and half each day for work and I listen to a lot of points and miles podcasts. Frequent Miler, is an extremely informative and a highly entertaining show. I have learned so much from them and applied it to my own travel hacking adventures. When the show comes out every Saturday morning I’m always hoping that it runs over an hour because it’s the most entertaining podcast out there for the hobby. Greg and Nick , keep up the great work!

Best travel rewards podcast

I look forward to this podcast every week. I even pretend to do yard work to sneak off and listen to this. My wife doesn’t share my enthusiasm for the subject and my daughter is too noisy. Anyway, it’s become a Saturday morning ritual. These guys are super detail oriented and informative. Keep up the good work.

These guys are naturals

There’s a lot of great content out there, but these guys deserve to be highlighted- they’re naturals at the medium, and I look forward to their podcast every week. Keep it up and thanks!
