Podcasts are excellent entertainment, whether you’re listening during a cross-country road trip or enjoying a podcast from your desk while you work remotely. Here are some travel podcasts to satisfy your desire to see the world.
The New York Times ~ “ If a place on a map could give a TED Talk, what would it sound like? That’s what the host Saleem Reshamwala seeks to find out in each episode of TED’s latest podcast, “Pindrop.” Join him on his global expedition for surprising, hyperlocal stories like a deep dive into the radio station in Bangkok that serves as the surrounding area’s emergency hotline, notice board and lost and found. Or meet the Mexico City-based masked vigilante protecting his fellow citizens from traffic accidents.
After several months of staring at your own four walls, you might start to feel as if you need to get away to the most remote place in the world, fast. Enter “Extremities,” a podcast that takes you on an odyssey to some of the most distant reaches on Earth. Season 1 is a six-episode journey to Pitcairn Island, a dot in the South Pacific Ocean between Chile and Australia; season 2 goes to the Svalbard archipelago between continental Norway and the North Pole; and the most recent season chronicles a sojourn to the South Atlantic island of St. Helena.” ~ The New York Times
