I'd like to run this podcast like a social enterprise.  Let's explore while elevating worthy voices in tourism.  All the boats rise together. 



Where will your ears go today!?

What's On This Travel Podcast?

No boring interviews...

A travel podcast should be compelling.  It should give voice to credible people with relevant experience. Travel Radio Podcast provides those  necessary elements and one more thing... a mission.

In addition to the travel professionals, journalists and academics I host one other category of person.  I am making purposeful attempts to give a voice to the under-heard people of the travel industry.  These are the tour guides, craftsmen and other tourism tangent people who want speak to a US audience.

 

We are in a truly unique time in the world's history.  All the boats can rise together.  Join me in the attempt!  

 

Please review this podcast on Apple Podcasts and share with a friend.  We can grow together!

My goal for 2021 is to be better about sharing my own pictures and the pictures my guests provide me on the Travel Radio Podcast IG page.  We live through our pictures after travel.  Let's celebrate that together!

History of Travel Radio Podcast

In the early days of Travel Radio Podcast guests were exclusively other travel professionals.  I am thankful for every one of those travel agents, most of whom never heard of a podcast before, let alone lent their voice or story to one.   Interacting with them in my agency is what gave me the content and confidence to start Travel Radio Podcast.  Each of them specialized in a unique niche or style of travel.

Recording a weekly travel podcast is exciting, takes a lot of planning, and 52 guests a year.  I soon ran out of guests I knew and trusted that were travel agent or travel planners doing these very specialized, bust out your passport, inspiring travel.  I had a little panic.  I had to consider interviewing guests on Travel Radio Podcast I had no connection to. 

My dilemma with interviewing guests on the podcast I have no connection with is the same as my privilege.  Travel Radio Podcast actually has listeners and a lot of them.  People will hear the podcast episodes and potentially, do business with podcast guests, trust them, etc.  Each episode of Travel Radio Podcast is created both as a joy and creative outlet for me but it is also a pretty “baller” promotional piece for each podcast guest.

So again, the dilemma and privilege…
