Belinda Jackson and Kirstie Bedford launch new travel podcast

Travel journos Belinda Jackson and Kirstie Bedford have teamed up to launch The World Awaits, a new travel podcast.

The announcement:

Travel journalists Belinda Jackson and Kirstie Bedford have launched Australia’s newest travel podcast, The World Awaits, uncovering stories from home and around the world, which will inspire you to hit the road.

With more than 50 years of travel experience between them, the duo promise to get the lowdown from industry experts and inside information from guests on the ground.

Friends and colleagues, the Melbourne-based co-hosts are both as passionate about travelling as they are about telling travel stories.

“We love talking travel, and our focus is on insider information – unearthing those nuggets of travel gold you can actually use on your next holiday,” says Belinda Jackson.

Kirstie Bedford says the podcast is timely as there’s never been more pent-up demand for travel.

“After a few difficult years, we hope that we can inspire people to take that trip they’ve been longing for,” she says. “The World Awaits is about connecting people with places they’ve always dreamed of going, and maybe some they haven’t thought of.”

This week’s episode features interviews with travel writer and foodie Ben Groundwater, ahead of his World Expeditions food tour to San Sebastian. He makes the case for loving Spain better, while Lisa Pagotto from Crooked Compass talks about why Nauru should be on adventurers’ travel list.
