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 in New York and our nationally syndicated radio program. Listen anytime at Frommers.com/podcast.
Cruise news is the primary subject of our first show this week. Cohosts Pauline Frommer and Jason Cochran consider Carnival Cruise Line’s plan to get back in the water by August 1. Is that too soon?
Meanwhile, tens of thousands of healthy American cruise workers never left the water—they’re still being quarantined aboard their ships. Still! And you thought your isolation period was challenging.
Amid discussions of those developments, callers weigh in with their own thoughts on the safety of cruises and the future of the industry.
Our second show this week is devoted to an interview with longtime travel writer Tim Cahill, a founding editor of Outside magazine and the author of several fascinating and irresistibly titled books, including Pecked to Death by Ducks, Pass the Butterworms, and A Wolverine Is Eating My Leg.
Cahill reminisces about his far-flung adventures, from learning about “penis gourds” in Papua New Guinea to eating acacia worms in Africa.
“How did they taste?” Pauline asks.
“Bacony,” he replies.
