Our Five Favorite Podcasts

| Words by Neil Villadolid

As nomads, we do a lot of traveling. That means we go to remote places and meet people from all corners of the earth. It's as fun as fun gets. But with all the excitement that comes with traveling, it also means a lot of downtime. Airport terminals and long car rides are something we all have experienced. This waiting can get a bit dry. So we've come up with a list of podcasts to help you kill time on your next journey. From adventure to technology, here are some of our favorite podcasts.
