Listen to award-winning travel podcasts from full-time travellers Craig and Linda Martin!
The Indie Travel Podcast is one of the world’s best travel podcasts (as voted by you and Lonely Planet), written and produced by international, independent (indie) travelers. We podcast about travel because we love it: adventure travel and long-term travel especially. We have more than 15 years of backpacking and digital nomad experience.
The Indie Travel Podcast is 100% free on iTunes, Soundcloud and more. You can support us by using the products linked to within this site, like accommodation and travel insurance, or by shopping on Amazon.com through this link.
What is an indie podcast?
An indie podcast is one produced by independent people instead of studios or corporations. They are often passion projects and small businesses, with podcasts written and recorded by an individual or very small team. The Guardian believes indie podcasts may be pushed out of the market by big enterprises. But we don’t want to go anywhere.
The Indie Travel Podcast is double indie: independently written podcasts about travel, by independent travellers. This makes it one of the best adventure travel podcasts and podcasts about travelling in general. Even if we don’t have flashy sound effects.

Something isn’t working! I can’t get it to play!!
How do I find old episodes of the podcast?
Some things just aren’t meant to be! We have intentionally removed some older podcasts.
Some podcasts are now out of date — quick changes to international politics, visa regulations, and even natural disasters mean that travel is a constantly changing subject. Podcasts that were dangerously out of date or currently unuseful have been taken down, as we don’t want to give you bad advice.
A few technical problems mean that some very early shows got irreparably damaged, and we didn’t like them enough to hunt through DVDs for the master files.
There is also a technical limitation on the size of the iTunes feed, which we just can’t get around. Every now and again we have to knock another 20 shows off the end of the list to ensure we can keep posting the new stuff.
Why don’t you have a video podcast? / Where did your travel video podcast go?
To be honest, it just got too expensive to run! The bandwidth we burn through in delivering hundreds of gigs of HD video is pricey! We’re looking for a corporate/travel company sponsorship at US$2,000 a month to bring it back — it’s great coverage for the right brand. Contact us through the contact page if you’re interested.
Can you provide podcasting consulting or content for my business?
We can, and we already have for many businesses. See Indie Travel Media to see how we can make your business look good online.
