Travel Tape, The Podcast

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Travel Tape, The Podcast

Postby Mucha Man » 22 Mar 2016, 10:05

As many of you know, I am a travel writer (I do the Lonely Planet Taiwan guide, for example), and you may have recently heard the podcast I did with Taiwan Temples.

Well now I have my own travel-themed podcast to announce: it’s called Travel Tape.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/tra ... 72513?mt=2
http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/robert- ... refid=stpr

Here’s the summary:

“From Lonely Planet writer Robert Kelly comes Travel Tape: stories from the other side of the travel guide. Deeply researched content and crafted soundscapes bring to life a full pack of tales, histories, legends, interviews and curiosities from around our world.”

In other words, this is not your typical Q&A interview-style show.

My first two episodes cover another Lonely Planet author’s “Walking with the Maasai” project, and also the borderlands of China. The Maasai podcast has some gorgeous audio recorded in Kenya, and some outstanding interviews including one with Moses Kinyaika, a former poacher (and accidental cannibal) turned conservationist.

Many of the upcoming shows will have Asian, and even Taiwan, themes.

I hope everyone will go have a listen but I am also asking you to help spread the word on your social media networks. If you do just one of the following I will be very grateful: tweet, share on Facebook or Google+, email to a friend, post on a blog, or listen to the show and leave a review. It’s up to you which you think might be more useful, or which you think you have time for.

To make it easy you can just copy and paste the following:

Twitter:
Walk with #Maasai. Explore borderlands with #Travel Tape the podcast from #lonelyplanet writer @rscott_kelly http://tinyurl.com/jfz3toy

Facebook, Google+, blog, email:
A Lonely Planet writer I know has just put out a podcast called Travel Tape. This is not your typical Q&A interview-style show but what he calls “stories from the other side of the travel guide, with deeply researched content and crafted audio bringing to life a full pack of tales, histories, legends, interviews and curiosities from around our world.”

Here’s a link to the show pages (or just go directly to iTunes, Stitcher or Google Play):

Thanks everyone. And do give me feedback, here on one on of the platforms.

If you keep the same sound and content quality as the Taiwan Temples one, you will go far, Mucha Man!

Thanks. I would say content-wise it is as high and original and sound-wise it is even better.

Consider making #traveltape a hashtag, or something else relevant. That way you'll be able to see / track how people are talking about it.

Do I just do that by posting #traveltape in a tweet? I believe it already is a hashtag though, but related to fixing things with tape. Lol

Yes, you can. I did a very quick search on it and it doesn't appear to be used much so you'd probably get "ownership" of it fairly quickly.

I will (hopefully remember) be listening to this. I have started listening to podcasts all the time and I liked the temple one.

Superb shows. The sound quality and richness is better than that produced in many professional studios. Really looking forward to the next episodes.

Thanks, almas john. If anyone wants to have a quick listen to some of the audio from the Walking With The Maasai show, this is a one-minute segment of writer/photographer Stuart Butler in the bush camping and talking about the night sounds. It's gorgeously produced if I do say so myself.
