A Friendly Planet Travel podcast with WNWR’s Barry Reisman

As you might have noticed, Peggy’s been making the rounds recently with a few travel shows on the Philadelphia air waves and beyond. Earlier this month, she appeared on Ralph Collier’s "Tours and Detours" on the WRTI Classical Network. Then, she popped over for a chat with WNRW’s Barry Reisman on his radio show "Dining and Destinations."

Well, I’ve been following quickly in her wake to turn the tables on these iconic Philadelphia radio hosts. Last week, I published my interview with Ralph Collier, and today I welcome you to hit play below to catch my most recent interview with the ever-pleasant Barry Reisman.

As I mentioned before, Barry is the host of his show "Dining and Destinations" on Philadelphia’s AM-1540. During each hour-long segment, Barry interviews experts and discusses food, travel, and other aspects of "the good life."

Last week, I had the chance to sit down with Barry and do the question-asking. So tune in to find out how Barry did in the hot seat!
