Travel Podcast

On our travel podcast we explore, challenge and learn about different destinations around the world to give you travellers some fun facts and travel hacks so you can travel around trouble free and full of knowledge! It’s a radio-style travel podcast with features such as Gameshow Facts, Language Lessons with Amy and Pho-bservations. We explore one country or culture every month plus a travel topic like how to not get scammed. All that, plus we tackle important world issues such as the conflict in Syria or the economic crisis in Venezuela by talking to local people to educate ourselves on travel topics with the help of experts.

JAPAN! A place most travellers dream of going to! You've got Tokyo, Osaka, Mount Fuji, Sushi, Sega, Super Mario and so much more! We discuss all of these in this episode featuring YouTuber Karl Watson. He recently visited Japan with his friend James where they travelled around by bullet trains, got up to no good in izakaya bars by talking to older men and visited the Hiroshima memorial site. In our game this month we try to actually turn Japanese! How do you do that I hear you ask? Well, you'll just have to listen won't you!

WHAT THE PHO INVESTIGATES THE VENEZUELAN CRISIS

Here we are in Cucuta at the Colombian/Venezuelan border in July 2019 with local resident Daniel.

We travelled Colombia to learn about the Venezuelan crisis and the affect that it’s had on Colombia. This country has taken in the most Venezuelan migrants (over 1 million) who are escaping the worst economic and social collapse that the America’s have ever seen. Listen to our documentary podcast below to hear from Colombians in Medellin, Venezuelans making a new life in Colombia, residents living on the border and we also speak direct to Caracas. What is day to day life like in the Venezuelan capital?
