A new podcast called ‘Road Trips’ is launching with a goal of providing a “portrait of a road trip from the point of view of an outsider looking at the story.”
The podcast will debut on Apple Podcasts on October 11, and features hosts Jules Verne, Mike Vadnais, and Ben Ronson.
In the first episode, Verne explains the difference between “road trip” and “trip,” and how he used the term in the past.
He then gives a quick rundown of the history of road trips in America.
After a brief introduction, the hosts begin by talking about the challenges they face in getting travel experiences from all over the world, including Canada.
It’s a fascinating look into the world of travel, but what’s also fascinating is that Verne’s work has been recognized by the National Academy of Sciences, as a National Science Award winning book in 2013.
Ronson, a longtime writer and podcaster for The Daily Show, also provides insight into his journey on his podcast, “The Ronson Report,” which is available on Apple Newsstand, iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play.
The podcast is part of a larger initiative called the “Road Tripped” series.
“We want to make sure that everyone has an experience, a roadtrip experience, on their podcast that they can relate to,” Verne says.
“Our podcast is a portrait of a trip from a road-trip perspective,” he says.
“It’s an exploration of the world and how we can travel to a place that we’ve never been to before.
We don’t necessarily want to give a lot of information about the road trip experience.
The podcasts that we do do a lot, like the travel podcasts, have a lot more information about that experience than we do.
We try to get as much information out of it as we can.”
The road trip podcast is being produced by the podcasting firm, A2A Publishing.
Verne is the managing editor, and Ronson is the head writer.
Verney’s experience in travel and podcasts helped him hone his storytelling style.
He says he likes to make a podcast that can get people excited and open up the conversation.
“When you’re a journalist, you’re trying to make the most of a job you’re doing,” Verney says.
When it comes to the podcast, Ronson says that he and Verne have a common goal.
“I want to tell a story about people who have travelled and have gotten to places they never imagined,” Ronson adds.
“So, when I get to a point where I have a story that’s compelling, I want to have someone come along and say, ‘Hey, we have this experience in the future,’ ” Verne adds.
“We want it to be something that they’ll relate to.
So, we’re trying not to just be telling the same story, but we want to build it into something they’re going to remember forever.”
As Verne describes it, the road trips are a “real-time journey” through the “country.”
“So the country is not a single destination,” he explains.
“This is a real-time trip to places we never imagined we would go, to places that never happened before.
The journey is going to take us across the country.
It can take us to places where we never thought we would be.””
The road trips, the story of our life and the journeys that we’re making are the journey,” Rónemes says.
