In my last post about podcasts, I was a little iffy about them. But after looking into it a little more, I’ve found a few that are actually pretty interesting. One of these is Rick Steves’ Audio Europe. Rick Steves has produced more than 50 guidebooks on European travel, and has both a television and radio show. Many American travelers look to Rick Steves for advice on how to become a “temporary local” in the city or country they are visiting. He is known for helping travelers connect more intimately with Europe, and for a fraction of the tourist price. His podcast channel offers advice for travel to Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, among other places. Each of these sub-channels offer several episodes on specific regions or traditions in the country.

I listened to an episode in the Rick Steves’ Spain sub-channel, called Sevilla and Andalucia. In the episode, Rick Steves speaks with native Spanish travel guide Federico Garcia Barroso and Sevilla native Concepción Delgado. The episode offers a ton of great advice for visitors, from food suggestions to transportation options.

Rick Steves’ podcast channel is perfect for the train or plane ride on the way to your travel destination. Listen to the Sevilla and Andalucia podcast below, and if it’s something you might enjoy, subscribe the channel at travel.podcast.com.
