Chris Christy's Band at the Spotted Cat | (R.Hochschild)

There's no need to carry around those travel guide books anymore. Yes, they are packed with great information, but these days podcasts providing travel advice can be a great help to first-time travelers. On a trip last week to New Orleans, I relied heavily on an episode of the Beyond Bourbon Street podcast, hosted by Mark Bologna. It was an incredibly helpful hour-long guide to planning a few days in New Orleans.

And then, in discussing that podcast and my trip, I realized I had created a travel tips podcast of mine own. I hope you find it helpful.

Apologies for an error in my utterances. I promised I would reveal what question I forgot to ask my last guest, José Massó, but I forgot to actually do that. What i had somehow forgotten to ask him was what advice he had, after 43 years experience, about hosting a music show, since I'm launching mine on WUMB this month. I hope to get the chance to ask him soon.
