Podcasts for travel enthusiasts

You’ve probably already heard what a podcast is. If not, it’s a kind of pre-recorded radio program in episodes you can listen to. Wherever you want and whenever you want. They are getting more and more popular.

What’s interesting, basically everyone can record their podcast. It can be on any subject you find interesting. I started to listen to podcasts a few years ago. I believe the first one was the Serial – an investigative journalism podcast. It’s still one of my favorites, and if you’re new to the podcasting world, you can start with that. There are thousands of them on iTunes, Spotify or a special app if you have an Android phone.

But today I want to introduce you to few more outdoors related podcasts.

The dirtbag diaries

You can choose between two formats: The Shorts – short essays written and read by their listeners, and Features, more extended episodes done in an interview/narration format. They have one thing in common – adventure and passion for traveling. They all are amazing stories about people who dream big and love to wander.

Zero to Travel Podcast

If you want to learn how to travel the world or spend less money on traveling, you’re in the right place. Travel expert Jason Moore from ZeroToTravel.com speaks with adventurous people living life on the road so you can also discover ways to travel full-time. They share a lot of good advice not only for newbies. Even if you’re experienced traveler, you can get something valuable out of it. They will teach you how to start and run an online business, how to search travel and work opportunities, how to plan adventures… They speak about fun travel jobs, travel based lifestyle and everything in between.

She explores

It’s “a podcast for and about women who are inspired by time spent outside.” There is no better description of what it is about. The podcast covers topics like hiking, wilderness, and impact on the countries we visit, but also mental health, and friendship. They’ve featured more than 200 exquisite women!

The Trail Show

They broadcast live from the Historic Beer District of Boulder, Colorado. They are funny, creative and they can brilliantly tell stories. One that usually you tell with a beer in hand by the bonfire. Maybe that’s why their main motto is “less gear, more beer!”

BBC The Documentary

Subscribing to this podcast you’ll be able to listen to the best of BBC World Service documentaries. If you are a big documentaries fun and a British accent lover, there is no better audition. You will hear the most amazing stories from travelers and explorers. Like the one about how to survive without food while forging trough Australian wilderness…
