Feeds your inner travel bug

I love this podcast. It keeps me dreaming of new destinations and experiences when I’m stuck at home. Jason is a pleasure and his enthusiasm for travel shines through in each interview.

Love them all, traveling vicariously (for now)

I love this show and every episode, regardless of whether I want to travel to the same destinations or not, I learn something from every show. I appreicate the balance between the digital nomad lifestyle, which I aspire to, long travel, volunteering and working overseas, and the many voices that appear on the show. Not to mention that Jason has a very kind, upbeat attitude and is a great podcast host, letting his guests speak and gently guiding the questions. One of my all time favorite podcasts. <3 Marya in N. Cali.
