“9 thumbs up”
Hi there - love this podcast! Especially as someone who really doesn’t have any international travel experience, hearing about someone else’s experiences helps immensely. Could you get a Podcast going about tips for traveling solo?
I’m a native Midwesterner and Chicagoan - so I would appreciate this podcast to bring it a little more back to earth, tell me about typical and cheesy touristy things. (And yes I listened to your over-tourism podcast about how everyone is going to see the same things)
Also regarding your Chicago trip podcast- I was disappointed that you guys really left out quintessential Chicago things to do! I think peoples first time visiting these places, they want to do typical tourist things. Like I would tell people to go to the Bean (even though it’s only ok) but Grant Park and Buckingham Fountain and Lincoln Park and Oak Street Beach and Navy Pier and Magnificent Mile shopping and eating.
Keep up the good work, this is still a very entertaining and useful podcast, I would just like to hear you guys being a little more authentic and down to earth!
It's fun and simple. I echo that it is often too NYC-centric. Always appreciate Mark on the podcast!
Mark--I'm clearly behind on my episodes. 5 Stars all the way! (05.23.19)
The Travelogue podcast is a great show because it’s ALL about travel and not much else. I appreciate that they get straight to the point, they discuss the subject matter without too much personal banter. While there is fun banter, they don’t drag out conversations about ‘what they did this weekend’ into a 10-minute intro that has nothing to do with traveling! I love that there are both men and women, single and married, and some with children who host this podcast, it makes it relatable to everyone, not just Millennials. I think there is a good mix of personalities. Lale Arikoglu, Laura Redman, Meredith Carey, Megan Spurrell, and Katherine LaGrave are superstars! I respect their perspectives and they bring such great experiences and variety to the show. I love them ALL as moderators, but I think Brad Rickman is the best as the moderator. He is so genuine and relatable, he steers the conversations so well. And Mark Ellwood, I could listen to him for hours. I am totally gutted that I just discovered this podcast when it was ending. WHY must you end this?! Please reconsider this podcast, perhaps a monthly episode could be manageable? Thank you for the great work you produced. Please start doing episodes again!
