We’re in the golden age of podcasting and if you look, you can find a podcast on just about any subject. So naturally, we’re pretty excited about a number of different travel podcasts and the great knowledge and information they share with their listeners.
We love reading and hearing travel enthusiasts talk about what they are experiencing in the travel world. Just like anyone else who likes to listen to some interesting podcasts while on the road or doing chores at home, we entertain ourselves with these podcasts. They are worth listening to.
Blackpacking is a travel podcast hosted by Jarika Johnson. She talks with other Black and POC travelers about their experiences in light of race and culture. Her guests have either visited new countries or traveled back to their country of origin and draw from their experiences there. This is an especially valuable podcast because it helps listeners understand how a specific culture understands the reality around them. Jarika also publishes blog articles on occasion about topics like Christmas in Colombia, the best travel apps, the segregation of U.S. airports, and even Jarika’s own must-listen travel podcasts.
Frantzces Lys runs the Monday Message podcast on Chronicles Abroad, a platform founded by Nubia Younge. On the show, she shares valuable insights and her experiences on entrepreneurship for women, through the scope of her traveling lifestyle. Frantzces has lived in 17 countries, including Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan. We especially liked episode 134 (Nubia And Frantzces Being Single Abroad With GILobally Grounded) where she and Nubia talked with Angelie about what it’s like to be single and living abroad.
Zero to Travel is a podcast that is specifically for the nomads. Hosted by Jason Moore, the podcast equips those who aspire to live the nomadic life with helpful, specific tips that will help travelers based on their means of travel.

Travis and Heather Sherry are a married couple who love sharing their knowledge about traveling through the Extra Pack of Peanuts podcast. Frugal-minded Travis likes to travel on a budget, and Heather, who likes the finer things of life, believes in traveling in comfortable stays. Together, they talk about traveling on a budget with scheduling in accommodating lodging. We liked the episode that gave us a recent historic look with “European Road Tripping In 1975 w/ Marshall & Debbie Hockett.”
