How did I not know about this radio show? Every week Radio 4’s Excess Baggage discusses a travel topic, this week it’s an interesting discussion about the Great Wall of China, while a in quick scan of previous shows I found a number of topics as diverse as Luang Prabang, toilets around the world, train travel, adventure travel with children and the usefulness of phrase books. A podcast and audio on demand are available.
Although not travel related I can’t let the opportunity to slip past to mention my absolute favorite show In Our Time with Melvin Bragg. If you’re a history buff like me it’s an absolute must, but some of the most interesting topics in science are often the subject matter of the show.
