Podcast #084 - Meet My Housesitting Host from North Carolina

DANSK UDGAVE: Søg efter “Radiovagabond” (ét ord). I'm in High Point, North Carolina. A small city, known as The Furniture Capital of the World. Not only do they have the world's largest furniture store, but they also host a large furniture market twice a year, where the city's population almost is doubled when 70-80,000 people come to the city. Another thing that High Point is known for is to produce the iconic American yellow school buses. I'm going to be housesitting a month here. I was...


Podcast #083 - Coca-Cola, CNN, Soccer, and a dead phone in Atlanta

I'm in Atlanta where I'm staying with my old friends from Denmark, Lars, and Marianne. Lars and I used to do a morning show on the radio back in Denmark, and they offered to host me a week here. Join me when I visit CNN started by Ted Turner back in 1976. At the time it was the world's first 24-hour news channel, and while they currently have studios around the world, CNN has its headquarters right here. The same goes for Coca-Cola, and here I also did a tour. I saw their museum, which...

Mostly they produce cigars in this area - and that is what keeps this city alive. According to John 99% is supported by the cigar...


Podcast #080 - Learning Spanish and meeting the locals in Nicaragua

DANISH VERSION: This episode is dedicated to the people of Nicaragua. Right now the country is going through the worst trouble since the civil war ended in 1990. Hundreds have been killed since the protests broke out in April this year.

I really hope that everything will come back to normal, so the country can prosper. MY NEXT HOME IN...

Podcast #074 - Danish Kringle is a Big Hit North of Chicago

DANISH VERSION: Search for Radiovagabond (one word). With a population of only 77,000, Racine, Wisconsin is not a big city, but has the largest North American settlement of Danes. When Danish immigration begins in the 1840s, Racine quickly becomes "the most Danish city in America" with 10% of all Danes in the USA. This is still visible now; as I drive into the city I see a lot of Danish flags and shops with Danish names. In this episode of The Radio Vagabond Travel Podcast, I’m in Racine,...

In this episode, I’m in Indianapolis, Indiana, where I’m staying with an Indian Couchsurfing host. She is very kind and cooks me a wonderful Indian dinner the first night.

Podcast #069 - I Got a Permanent Souvenir in Nashville

I continue my road trip through the United States and have arrived in the music capital of the world, Nashville. Here I’m staying with Steve, my Couchsurfing host. He’s a musician and just to mention one he’s apart of a fake punk band called Snake Vomit. They specialize in playing 20-second songs with funny titles. But he’s also part of a few other bands where they actually rehearse and play in the same key. Steve and I visit a local restaurant that is so good at making spicy chicken that...
