Great podcast for enhancing my travel knowledge!

I have been listening to this podcast while on-the-go and traveling myself, and it is very informative about new locales to check out, as well as fun facts. It inspires me to add more locations to my bucket list!

Interesting but short

I think this podcast has potential to be my favorite but it’s just too short. It’s strengths are Interesting topics and good narration. But it burns through their topics and dips its toe into the subject rather than really exploring them. One episode a month with robust info would make this a stellar podcast. Amazing production value though. Touches on some great subjects but not much travel info

More thoughtful than most travel podcasts

Great show that connects travel with culture and larger political events. Many shows like these are the subjective musings of the host; this one is much more broad minded.
