Podcasters create some fantastic content to fuel your travel dreams or direct your attention to a sight that the guidebooks overlooked. Some pocasts have a fleeting existence and a number of very promising podcasts disappeared after a few episodes I’ve tried a variety of travel podcasts but there are three that stand out from the crowd. Regular episodes, useful information and an obvious love for travel make each of these worth your download and listening time.
Chris Christensen presents the Amateur Traveler podcast mixing travel news, destination guides, interviews and travel know-how. He recently interviewed the Anders family who travelled around the world for a year, an inspiring story for anyone who is putting off travel because of the kids.
Rick Steves is our primary guide in Europe through is wonderful guidebooks and television shows but his podcast encompasses travel destinations beyond Europe with the same simply philosophy of thoughtful travel he applies to Europe.
Cheryl and Scott spent the last year in Europe and sharing their discoveries through their podcast. While this one may have a limited shelf life as their trip ended in July 2007, their observations and recommendations are worth your time and may inspire you to try a similar journey.
