A Podcast Adventure

One of the highlights of the first Uncruise Adventure my wife and I booked was when the ship was visited by “Captain Dan” Blanchard, the CEO of Uncruise Adventures. Those who have met Blanchard and experienced his unbridled enthusiasm for outdoor travel and the wilderness of Alaska and the other parts of the world where Uncruise operates will enjoy this podcast. And, even if you haven’t personally met Captain Dan you will find the interviews he offers in this series fascinating and well worth your time. The guests are all involved in the travel industry and provide interesting insights for travelers and industry professionals alike.
