In our recent survey, we invited our audience to ask us anything, and we got 153 excellent questions in response. The queries ran the gamut from ‘what’s the best thing about living in Prague?’ to ‘how did you meet?’ and ‘how do you choose the books for the show?’
In this mini-episode, we answer those questions and more. We give you a behind-the-scenes peek at how we decide which destinations to cover — and when — along with our (perhaps overly-complicated) criteria for selecting the books we recommend. And, due to popular demand, we divulge the travel secrets of our cat Smudge.
We answered other popular questions in a previous edition of ‘Ask Us Anything,’ including how we met, whether or not we really love everything we recommend, previous jobs, and more. You can listen to that episode right here.
