We had fun talking a few days ago with Rudy Maxa, our favorite travel host on radio. Rudy Maxa’s World is a great program all about travel. We learn tips about airline travel internationally and continental, about cruises, cellphones and quirky travel issues too from Rudy’s radio show. We are frequently on the radio. We listen to programs, and we listen and talk a little on amateur radio. This is the first time we’ve talked on nationally syndicated radio and, we’re pretty sure, the first time Rudy Maxa has interviewed full-timers like us.
Rudy Maxa is well known as public radio’s “Savvy Traveler” and an award-winning contributing editor with National Geographic Traveler magazine. He is a contributing editor to Delta Air Lines’ SKY magazine and Artful Living, the Twin Cities’ lifestyle magazine. The voice of National Geographic Traveler’s “Walks of a Lifetime” podcasts, he also hosts America’s most widely-syndicated, weekend travel radio show, also called “Rudy Maxa’s World,” that airs on 110+ mostly news/talk stations and XM Radio in North America.
His blog has Travel Minutes, a great bunch of short topics about travel. Recent topics include vacation packages, vacations for your pet, and the future of guidebooks. Also fun and informative are Rudy’s Picks. We’ve enjoyed browsing through them.
You can find our interview with The Savvy Traveler here in the second hour podcast — we are on at 12:33, midpoint in the second hour.
Rudy Maxa talked with us about our full-timing life in the Airstream. We found him an engaging host, and our six minute interview seemed to take just a minute. Thanks Rudy, we love your show!
