Like a Box of Chocolates

I never miss a chance to hear Pauline speak in person. She is so knowledgeable! The Frommers are such travel experts that I enjoy the podcasts. However, it would be helpful to see episode summaries on line. I’d like to know the guests and travel destinations before I invest the time listening. This podcast is like a box of chocolates—you never know what you’re going to get.

Good content, wrong format

Listening to this show is a pleasure, and these two do an excellent job of breaking down travel topics that matter and securing informative, entertaining guests.

Pauline should ditch the radio show and shift to a true podcast format that’s not bound to a clock. The program is riddled with poorly timed interruptions, often as the guest is in mid-thought and about to reach the climax of some thrilling travel anecdote. Many other hosts would simply go a little over the allotted time and make it up in the next segment, provided they’re not up against the hard out-time at the end of the hour.

I’m nit picking here. This is an excellent show hosted by two of the industry’s top experts, and is well worth a listen for the thinking traveler.

Too political
