For my money, this is the best travel podcast online. Why? First, other travel shows usually consist of multiple commentators who climb all over each other trying to be funny and cute. The fact that Bembridge offers his info solo, earnestly, without fluff, fanfare, or silliness is a big plus.
Second, the portraits he paints of travel spots are vivid and interesting even if I have no plans to partake of those places: I suspect that I will never go to Mauritius, ride a train in South Africa, or go on a Cunard cruise, but his enjoyment of these experiences is infectious and fun to hear about.
Third, the historical background that he offers about the travel sites provides welcome context to places like Victoria Falls, Shanghai, and Barbados.
Finally, his voice with the Brit (actually Zimbabwean?) accent is quite soothing and can lull one to sleep--in a good way!
I look forward to each podcast--the longer and more detailed the better...
