Each week, Frommer's brings you two fresh podcasts stuffed with travel tips, news, and inspiration. Recordings are made from our weekly call-in show on WABC-770AM in New York and our nationally syndicated radio program.
To start things off, hosts Pauline Frommer and Jason Cochran invite listeners to share special experiences—concerts, festivals, transporting restaurant meals—worth traveling for. That leads to a discussion of unforgettable culinary events such as lunch at the Eiffel Tower in Paris and dinner at Thomas Keller's acclaimed French Laundry restaurant in Napa Valley.
Then focus shifts to the U.K. as Jason describes a rediscovered Roman ruin that has become the "newest oldest attraction in London," and callers get help finding Scotland's cute seaside towns and affordable transportation from Glasgow's cruise port.
Also covered: the best way to get to Cuba and the ideal number of days to spend in Vienna and Tokyo.
Our other weekly show assesses a number of websites and apps that purport to help travelers find affordable airfare and avoid long lines at the airport.
But Pauline's interview with regional cuisine connoisseur Michael Stern of Roadfood might inspire you to ditch planes altogether and take a culinary road trip along Route 66 instead. He stops for Italian beef in Chicago, frozen custard in St. Louis, onion-fried burgers in Oklahoma, green chile bread in New Mexico, and banana pie in Los Angeles.
Sounds like he's gonna need to stop for an antacid, too.
