WTF is it with travel podcasts?
“It seems like everyone wants to be serious, sincere, ernest, thoughtful and useful in travel podcasts. There’s nothing wrong with that, but travel is way too fun to ignore the weird, the wild, the messy, the awkward and, yes, the inappropriate moments that happen on the road that, often, make the most memorable travel experiences. At least more so than some ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ crappola that seems to dominate the landscape. Embrace the wild side of travel, and join us.”
