18 Podcasts to inspire vegan travelers + new release

Finding a good reason to travel isn’t hard. Actually getting out on the open road and committing your time (and hard-earned money to travel) is where it gets a little more difficult. Often travelers come up with hundreds of different questions at the beginning of the trip.  For the answers, there are travel podcasts out there to help you plan a trip, large or small. Podcasts have exploded in popularity in recent years, especially in the travel niche. After all, who doesn’t love to travel? Unique travel stories, helpful tips, information on creating a nomadic lifestyle, and inspiration on the go — there are podcasts for them all. In this blog, WVT tried to cover all the branches of travel podcasts specially curated for our vegan travelers. These are not vegan podcasts, so be aware of that when choosing podcasts to listen to. A podcast on best places to fish, might not be content you are interested in!? But first, WVT is releasing its own podcast! The anticipated date for release is 1st December 2019!

We will do different types of episodes. We share our vegan travel experiences and the experiences of others to inspire you to get out into this beautiful world and we conduct interviews with people doing amazing things to promote vegan travel as well as individuals and organizations that are protecting human and nonhuman animals in a destination you could be visiting.
