Amateur Traveler Podcast
The weekly Amateur Traveler podcast looks at a different destination each week. We look at everything from what should you put on your Chicago dog in the Windy City to going to Tonga and swimming with whales. We also post transcripts for these episodes.
This Week in Travel
The This Week in Travel podcast is not quite as regular but usually is published twice a month. It is a round table discussion between co-hosts Gary Arndt, Jen Leo, a guest and me. We cover travel news and tips in each show.
Amateur Traveler Videos
Amateur Traveler also has a video version that comes out occasionally. It covers both travelogues as well as travel gear reviews.
