Nomadtopia Radio is run by Amy Scott and is the must listen podcast for those wanting to start living the nomad lifestyle. Each month Amy interviews people from all over the world who are living their version of Nomadtopia. They might be living abroad, settling down (for now), traveling overland with kids, homeschooling, or backpacking solo around the world.
The show gets into all the nitty-gritty details of travelling from the ins and outs of daily life as a traveler/nomad (banking, technology, what to do with your stuff etc) to getting started and making it all happen.
- Flight of Fancy
The Flight of Fancy podcast is run by a team of travel journalists under the Traveller.com.au brand.
