Peaceful Talk with Pico Iyer

Next week, I'll be conducting about 40 interviews in six days for my public radio program, Travel with Rick Steves. In preparation, I was listening to a few of our recent interviews, and found this one, with Pico Iyer, particularly engrossing. I find him both a blessing and an inspiration. Listen and take some time to ponder the ways travel can bring us peace and provide an oasis from our hectic day-to-day lives.

By the way, we've been producing radio shows filled with interviews like this for the last eight years. That's about 400 hour-long programs, and they're all available for free at Rick Steves' Radio.

Do you already tune in to my radio show? Do you listen to it via podcast? What was your favorite interview?
