My Favorite Travel Podcasts

Stuck On A Plane?

Updated 6/17/15

Are you looking for something to listen to while sitting in an airport for hours on end, on a long-haul flight, taking a cross-country train journey, or simply just commuting across town? I’m a big fan of podcasts and currently have almost 50 that I subscribe to. Although I don’t always have time to listen to all of them, there are some I never miss an episode of. For listening to the podcasts on iPhone, check out the Downcast app. It’s my favorite after trying a few different ones out.

Here is a list of some of my favorite travel podcasts that may give you some new tips and inspiration:

Tropical MBA Podcast

This is my #1 favorite podcast. Every week Dan and Ian tell stories and give advice on running a business while traveling. They always have some ridiculous stories as well as actionable advice and travel tips.

Abroaders Podcast

This is a podcast I just recently found, but it’s great. They talk a lot about travel hacking, getting cheap flights, and tips for living abroad in different countries.

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast

In this podcast, Travis talks all things travel hacking and frequent flyer points. He also hosts a lot of interesting guests, including people like Chris Guillebeau, Lee Abbamonte, and Colin Wright.
