1. Indie Travel Podcast
For everyone who’s ever wanted to learn how to travel full time (and more importantly debt free), this podcast is a godsend. Linda and Craig from The Indie Travel Podcast have been going strong on the road since 2006, and their show features heaps of cool interviews with experts, plus tips on how to budget on your travels.

2. Zero to Travel
If your ears are after something a bit more esoteric, Jason from Zero to Travel regularly digs down into what travel is, why we do it, and how we can do it better. Throw in a few tips on off-beat travel methods (like international volunteering) and you’ve got an inspiring mix for the sweaty train commute home.
3. Amateur Travel
Amateur Travel is all about destinations, which makes it pretty handy for those suffering from the travel version of Kid-in-a-Candy-Store Syndrome. Chris started the show in 2005 and he’s racked up an amazing database of 300 episodes – each full of useful info on a particular spot.
4. Extra pack of peanuts

This is a cool web travel series you should definitely check out if your bandwidth and data is up to the challenge. Kim and Maren publish bite sized 5 to 10 minute webisodes of their adventures in Asia, Europe and elsewhere. Professional and unpretentious, the way we like it.
10. Beautiful Places in HD
One for the photographers out there. This one does like it says, shows you beautiful places around the world in crystal clear HD. Although you can find nice images all over Instagram any time, these are more photo essays grouped around themes, which adds a touch of poetry to the pretty pics.
