I have become a huge fan of podcasts. I enjoy the format of listening to a long form conversation about a certain subject. Podcasting has created an entirely new way of communication and getting information. I have my favorite podcasts and the Books & Travel Podcast hosted by author and entrepreneur Joanna Penn makes that list.
Joanna goes in depth with a writer about their travels in a particular location and has them recommend books pertinent to the place they are discussing on the podcast. The Books and Travel Podcast is a great way for escape and inspiration without having to leave your home.
My favorite podcast episodes are travels from Granada and Cordoba in Spain with historical mystery author David Penny, Venice with Historical Fiction author Laura Morelli, and Berlin with author Rebecca Cantrell. I have learned a lot from these episodes about places I have not visited, and it has made me eager to find out more.
If you love books and travel, then I recommend The Books and Travel Podcast. Escape and Education are easily accessible these days and this podcast can provide a getaway to stir your imagination and learn something about a place that you might have never thought to visit.
