Too many topics for a 50 min podcast

I’ve always enjoyed watching Rick on his travel shows, and it translates well to podcast. My only request is for him to interview one or two people in each podcast vs three. When there are so many different topics to talk about and people to interview the whole thing is rushed and feels lacking.
Love the show - just wish it was one or two subjects max per podcast.

Great, but please...

I've been listening to this podcast forever. It's very engaging and informative. It compliments the books brilliantly. However, please, Rick, stop interrupting or cutting off your guests when they're talking. Sometimes they're in the middle of a story or an explanation, and you interject with YOUR explanations. I think your guests are smart enough to explain things to your audience. That's my only beef with this podcast. Otherwise, keep up the good work. Thank you!

In love in Utah..

Rick. I have been a podcast junky for a couple years now and listen to little else. I have had about 8 that I rotate through and have hung on every episode. However, I can honestly say since I did a search for travel podcasts and listened to the first episode of yours I’ve not listened to ONE podcast I had previously subscribed to. I wake up at 530 every morning now just so I can go for a run while listening to your shows. I make an excuse to go for drives to listen and every spare moment you are in my ears. Everyone I know asks me where I’ve traveled to today. And my answer is Istanbul Budapest Cairo Disney Land Ireland .. learning about the wars of our past and the history of our planet.. how to find our ancestors, how to appreciate our roots, and be still, and be present, and learn to live life on another deeper level. Ive road tripped the south and know the best places to have clam chowder in the East.. I’ve hiked Mount Everest and been on safari in Africa.. I AM IN LOVE!!
Ever since living in Israel at 14 yrs old for a year something has been awakened inside me and travel and history and people are in my bones. I’ve learned so much and feel life more deeply and you’ve fed my soul. I hope that some day I can go and experience the beauty of this planet and its people and all it has to offer, but until then thank you thank you for opening up this world for us all!(And I don’t agree that you interrupt your guests. You’re perfect!) Love, Your #1 fan Haley Carlson in Utah ♥️🌎
