Podcast #082: Mistletoe and Whine

A shot taken at night, showing a pop-up cabin in a city street, King Street Craft Bar in bright lights. The place seems quite crowded.

Welcome to Episode 082 of my “Travel Tales From Beyond The Brochure” podcast.

Well, you may be pleased to know I survived my trip to SE Asia. But it was a close-run thing as you’ll hear at the start of this episode.

Anyway. It’s Christmas. I should do a pod about this time of year. And this is one I’ve cobbled together at the last possible moment. I think I might well whine a bit more than usual in it. But it’s fine; this isn’t my time of year by definition.

Topics discussed in this episode are:

  • The most 8 minutes I’ve ever had on a plane
  • My Christmas is low-key
  • 100 Countries by Age 50
  • American Christmas Music Radio
  • Whamageddon!
  • Christmas trees
  • Australia at Christmas
  • Christmas markets I have seen and drank at
  • Family Christmasses growing up
  • Pantomimes
  • New Year traditions

You can listen via the feed above, or via Spotify, or on your podcast app of choice. Let me know if it isn’t, by the way, and I’ll see what I can do. In addition, a PDF transcript of this episode is available.

As always, if you have anything to say about the topic, or indeed about my podcasting in general, leave a comment or let me know. I now have a newsletter you can subscribe to, containing extra content, and it’s where I’ll be mentioning future podcast episodes if you want to make your own contribution.

I also now have a Patreon! If you like what you hear, and want to access exclusive content (or just to show your appreciation), then head on over to my page and donate to me!
