Listen to Episode #41 On-Demand

This week, we chat with Ed Bolian, the man from Atlanta who recently broke the “Cannonball Run” land speed record, driving from New York to Los Angeles in less than 29 hours. He’ll tell us how he did it and the intense preparations that went into setting the long-distance speed record.

Our travel news segment This Week in Travel will focus on a new underwater hotel room available in Tanzania for a mere $900 a night. Also, Jeremy discusses the controversy caused by ‘Emotional Support Animals’ that get on planes and sometimes cause more problems than they solve.

If you’re headed southeast this season, there’s a good chance you’ll be driving along I-24 in Tennessee or through the city of Chattanooga. This week we’ll share some of the secrets of enjoying this stretch of road in ourAlong the Way… segment.

Our On the Lighter Side comedy segment features a call from Stan Lawrence and his plan to set a speed record…. of another kind.

Join us for another hour of roadtripping, travel, and fun with a few classic commercials from the old days of radio sprinkled in for good measure. It’s another episode of Road Trip Radio!
