Travel News Asia - Podcasts from the Travel Industry, Hospitality and Aviation - Archive Page 2

Below is the archive of exclusive travel industry and aviation-related podcasts from TravelNewsAsia.com featured between March 2016 and November 2019. The most recent podcasts are on the main Podcast page.

Not everybody has the time to watch a 15 or 20-minute in-depth interview in video format. Not only does video drain your mobile's battery a lot faster than just audio, a lot of the time you cannot just put it down and listen to what's being said without the phone turning the audio off when the screen goes dark.

That's why in 2016 we started making podcasts of all the interviews that we do, and they have proved very popular.

Links to the corresponding video interviews can be found in each podcast's description below.

We also publish a RSS Feed of all our podcasts, and you can read how to use that here. If you already know how to use RSS Feeds you can copy the url of the feed by clicking on the button below:
