  1. I’ll definitely give Van Sounds a listen, I’d love to see what the most famous travelers are up to. As told by nomads sound an interesting podcast to download too. Go to travel too, all those hours we spend on the bus traveling, these are some great suggestions.

  2. You know I have never heard a podcast and you are so right that if you could listen to what you wrote while you were driving then that would be ideal. I have been thinking for a while to do it and your post is pushing me more towards to breaking out of my module and listening to one. Thanks for the suggestions.

  3. I would personally recommend Tayo Rockson with his podcast As Told By Nomads. Tayo has such great energy during his show! He really asks the right questions to get the best information out of his guests. Love listening to his show on my drives to work! Thanks Tayo for being great at what you do!

    I am going to give all your recommendations a go! Love to listen!

  4. Great content. Shame that I have not tried any of these yet. Go the Travel Podcast and Tips For Travellers Podcast particularly sound interesting to me . Because I am a traveler who needs constant tips as well as need to be connected to opportunities far and wide all the time. Thanks for putting up this useful list.

  5. Personally, I have not listened to a travel podcast before. But would definitely be interested to hear the Van sounds and ‘Go to the Travel’ podcast. It is always inspiring to hear about inspiring travelers and from the locals themselves.

  6. I love podcasts and you can listen to them on the go rather than having to sit and read a lot of text so this is certainly something I would come back too and use when I next travel

  7. I like the sound of the tips for travellers and nomads podcast. I have been meaning to listen to more podacasts on travel for a while now!

  8. I have a sordid love affair with podcasts .. and I’m excited to add some that focus on travel. Now I’ll be able to live vicariously through amazing bloggers like you who travel the world and tell us all about it!

  9. I love that podcasts are becoming a thing again. It’s a fun way to learn more about things that are going on around the world. These are great! I should start listening to travel podcasts more.

  10. What a great idea! Podcasts are a great alternative to music, and these sound like they would be great to listen to in the car, or even on a long flight! Do you know of any good ones by female travelers?

  11. Good list! I haven’t really gotten into listening to podcasts but I’ve been thinking of it. These are some great podcasts I can start off with. Thanks!

  12. I have never tried listening actual podcasts! I wonder why… I think I’ll try these out as I’ll be working in a factory for a week to save for my next adventures! I think those shall give me some ideas and inspiration! Thanks for sharing!

  13. We recorded for one pod cast but to be honest never really tried listening to one. But podcast are quite a trend off late. Thanks for introducing some amazing podcast and ideas. Would love to start listening to one.

  14. I had never really considered the idea of travel podcasts, but these all sound pretty interesting. Really liked the idea of the As Told by Nomads podcast. The combo of business and travel is appealing…might have to tune in and see what he has to say!

  15. wow! this are some cool ones. I need to check the “as told my nomads” it sounds really interesting to me as I have always secretly dreamed on becoming a nomad 🙂

  16. I’ve never listened to a travel podcast before as sad as that is. These would be perfect to swap out for music as I train for my first marathon.

  17. Travel podcasts could be the future of travel blogs. However I do not see writing going away any soon. We too have participated in a podcast about our travel experiences. Yet to see the final product though. Will check out these podcasts for tips.

  18. Wow. This is an interesting post. I have bookmarked it 🙂 Will surely listen to these travel podcasts. Always looking for different source of inspiration 🙂

  19. We had never thought about the Travel Podcast before this sounds like a great idea, though. Go the Travel Podcast sounds interesting where we could hear information and details about a location directly from a local or a tourist guide. We would also love to listen to Adventure Rider Radio for inspiring motorcycle diaries.

  20. I have so far not started to explore podcasts, I actually don’t know why. There really seems to be so many of them, so I have not really found one to start with. So far I’m stuck with the NRK news instead. Norway actually got 24h news broadcasts, which we lack here in Sweden. Writing that, i once more consider to actually replace it with a podcast. Will have a look at your suggestions. 🙂

  21. I have a friend who travels a lot and she recommends a couple. Zero to Travel, because every interviewee has a great story to tell. It reminds her that she can do anything. Also, the Extra Pack of Peanuts podcast. Especially the interview with Jessica Lawrence about her solo, cross-country cycling trip!
