Kerala is a really beautiful place.I love Kerala…



My wife is from Kerala and I was sad to hear your podcast. No mention of catholicism being founded in Kerala by St. Thomas. Which is quite unique to Southern India and has a large population. In addition, Kerala was under British rule, so you obviously would expect to have only limited language issues in the way off the beaten path areas. A lot less than anyone else in the world visiting the U.S. The climate is also very unique in Kerala compared to the rest of India. Many major aspects of Kerala were missed that are much more substantial than the points that were hit, making me leary of other travel podcasts you have on other countries. (or states within countries) I wont even comment on Dominica where I worked 10 days a month for over a year. I will say locals pronounce it DOM-i-NEEK-a. Its not the Dominican Republic.



Every show is heavily influenced by the guest and how they see a destination. We always miss something, you just don’t always notice it. Of course the same thing is also true for traditional journalism. But thanks for catching our omission!
