Earlier this month, the Family Travel Association (FTA) launched Family Travel Radio, a podcast designed to help parents discover what’s possible when it comes to traveling with their children.
Family Travel Radio is hosted by podcasting veteran Aaron Schlein, who has produced nearly 100 episodes of his two existing podcasts: “Dramatic Travels Family” and “Dramatic Travels Entrepreneurs.” Schlein has interviewed a variety of experts, including family travel specialists Eric Stoen of Travel Babbo, Caroline Makepeace of TravelBlog and Rainer Jenss, founder of the FTA.
Schlein says he has a passion for inspiring families to travel.
“When I was a kid, I was lucky to have adults in my life who understood the value of travel,” he said. “My grandmother, in particular, went out of her way to show me the world. Thanks to her, I visited 12 countries on four continents before my 18th birthday. She inspired my curiosity and passion for travel.”
Schlein plans to cover a wide range of topics on Family Travel Radio, including overcoming fear that limits exploration; the developmental benefits of travel; and transitioning to family travel for new parents.
“Now that I’m a parent, I want to pay forward my grandmother’s generosity,” Schlein said. “I want to be the inspiration my grandma was to me and help others be that inspiration for the young people in their lives.”
