Adventure and inspiration

Wonderful inspiration to travel and explore destinations around the world. I love hearing the interviews with local guides who are so knowledgeable about the trips with firsthand knowledge of the adventures. My bucket list keeps growing!

C Go 1 ,

Sound quality (volume discrepancy between individuals)

Great show! I really learn from the featured guests. Only wish the hosts would do a quick sound check before recording (i.e. Kerala episode is good example of Karen’s volume being very loud compared to quiet volume of George and Benny). Makes us scramble to quickly adjust volume up or down when different people speak.

Otherwise 5-stars! :-)
