We’re really excited to start rolling out a new audio format for Indie Travel Podcast.

We wanted to tighten up our travel podcast, and we’ve found a way that we can do this, improve our story-telling, and make the world a better place.

Starting with this episode, 286, (iTunes, Stitcher or Soundcloud) we’re rolling straight into it.

The breakdown:

Each podcast will comprise five parts,

  • The intro
  • Our week
  • The feature
  • Indie Travel Podcast tip of the week
  • The outro

The intro and outro should be self-evident, but in the other sections…

Our week

We’ll be talking about what we’ve been up to! We’ll try to focus on experiences rather than a play by play, telling some of our favourite stories with events, places, and people — both good and bad — we find on the road.

We’re going to start and end this section with some music or sounds we record during the week. In this episode, Surfing, Yoga, And Sustainable Living In Fuerteventura, we open and close with live Irish music we heard on the streets of Dublin. We’ll be trying to grab church bells, buskers, train lines, public announcements and all sorts each week.

The feature

In 10-15 minutes we’ll cover a destination, a set of tips, or an interview from travellers around the world. This section is designed to be interesting, enlightening, inspiring… but most importantly, helpful. As always, our goal is to help you travel well.

Indie Travel Podcast tip of the week

We’ve noticed we always come across some little titbit of information: a website we found useful, hints on navigating a bus station, something that made life easier on the road. We’ll be snapping this on to the end of the show… and you know what’s really cool?

We’d love you to contribute your tips! Your voice on the Indie Travel Podcast!

We haven’t quite figured out how to do this — we’ll probably end up with a digital answering machine you can record onto, but it’s coming soon. In the meantime, you can record an audio tip with the voice memo app on your phone and email it to mail@indietravelpodcast.com.
