Informative and fun

Love The Points Guy but needs structure...

I love the points guy and all their articles. But I do think this podcast doesn’t have a structure when it comes to what they focusing on travel wise. I loved the Battle of the airlines, that would have been a great series to do with hotels, rental cars, and other travel brands. They talk about some cool cities but they don’t really give you something to look forward to every week.
