The Best Podcasts for Traveling
All of us have favorite websites… you know, those sites and blogs we peek in on right after checking our emails and updating our Facebook statuses.
I never know what I might find, but I rarely expect to see my name featured in one of those sites. Well, that’s exactly what happened last night.
I was paying my regular visit to www.IndieTravelPodcast.com, and as you might expect, I was compelled to click Craig Martin’s “Ten Podcasts to Travel With.” There at #6 was the Irish Fireside with our names tucked in there.
I have to say, it feels great to get some notice from outside the Irish/Irish-American community (I love you guys too, but sometimes it’s nice to hear from an outside audience).
It’s especially nice when it’s coming from a source I respect. Craig and his wife Linda have been catering to the independent traveler crowd for several years, and have just extended their expertise to an all-out travel magazine… the gorgeous Indie Travel Podcast Magazine – www.indietravelpodcast.com/magazine.
The only thing missing from the list was the Indie Travel Podcast itself… I guess Craig was being modest.
I’ve got a few other podcasts I listen to regularly, so I thought I’d take a moment to highlight them:
- Engaging Ireland Podcast
- Frickin Circus
- Hometown Tales
- Indie Travel Podcast
- Irish and Celtic Music Podcast
- Irish Roots Cafe
- The Moth Podcast
- NPR: StoryCorps
- PRI: To the Best of Our Knowledge
- RTE Playback
- Storylife Podcast
- This American Life
- WNYC’s Radio Lab
- A Year in Europe (archived)
Keep up the good work podcasters, and for those of you who listen to podcasts, take a moment and let the creators know you’re out there. It will mean a lot!
All these podcasts are available on iTunes.
