Show 18: All About Travel Bugs

Listen To The Show

Today’s show is all about travel bugs – from the basics of what they are and how to create your own, to stories of unusual and unique TBs that we have encountered (or placed ourselves!) We also share some listener emails (you may be famous!!) and give our Official Once-A-Month Podcast Alley Voting Reminder (Vote Now). Note: You can see how much your ONE vote can make a difference. Check the show’s standing overall and in the technology category before AND after you vote to see the power your vote makes!

Podcast Alley VOTE:
As we promised, we are only going to do this once a month. It’s now October, the counters are reset, so we have a new opportunity to rocket up to the top of the charts!! (Or at least do a slow crawl…) Every vote counts. Thanks for taking a minute to VOTE for Podcacher.
