    You missed The Budget Minded Traveler and Extra Pack of Peanuts, my new favorite travel podcast! I also occasionally listen to Travel with Rick Steves, and I subscribe to tons of Disney podcasts, which do count as travel shows!

    Great list! I personally enjoy listening to many of those, some of which inspired me to start my own podcast a few months ago. On my podcast, I interview inspiring and successful entrepreneurs that have created location-independent businesses that allow them to travel while earning an income.
