Travel with Rick Steves is a weekly one-hour conversation show about travel, cultures, people, and the things we find around the world that give life its extra sparkle. Rick Steves is the leading authority on travel to Europe, and is extending his interest to global topics. A lively mix of guest interviews and listener calls, the radio show goes beyond covering travel and cultures across every continent. He is an author of over 30 travel guidebooks and the longtime host of the "Rick Steves' Europe" TV series, Steves was attracted to radio because of its ability to interact with listeners in ways that TV cannot.
"Radio provides a virtual café for travelers to meet up, sharing tips, insights and discoveries," says Steves. "On my radio show, rather than being the tour guide, I get to host the coming together of experts on various cultures and travel themes with our callers and listeners. Serving as the conduit for all this exciting travel information comes with a downside: now I want to travel everywhere our radio show does."
