Travel podcasts allow you to escape to faraway places from the comfort of your own home, which is a good thing considering that many of us are on lockdown.
Over the years, travel podcasts have encouraged armchair travellers to book that holiday and explore a new place. It also provided the listener with an opportunity to discover new places that they never knew about.
Here are five travel podcasts to listen during the lockdown:
