Is this podcast just for international travel or is it good for USA camping and hiking trips?
This podcast is mainly focused on international travel, but we’ve slowly started putting out more travel tips and strategies that can be applied to trips within the United States. Camping and hiking in the United States can be intimidating for solo travelers, so we have episodes specifically on safety, where to travel, and where to find the best hiking and camping in the United States.
Here is a great episode on US National Parks, camping, and hiking.
Is this podcast helpful for female solo travelers?
The Millennial Travel Podcast focuses a lot on travel safety, overcoming objections from loved ones about traveling, and getting out of your comfort zone. We have several inspiring interviews with female solo travelers.
What are some of your top podcasts on travel in general?
Some of our top episodes include Gabby Beckford, a Gen Z woman of color, who has been named Lonely Planet’s Best Emerging Voice of the Year, or our travel hacking episode with Nick Ewen, Editor of The Points Guy, where we break down credit card rewards miles.
