Maybe you’ve found yourself wondering what it might’ve been like to cross the country by car, eating at roadside diners and staying in a motor court comprised solely of tipis. While these thoughts sound nostalgic, they’re still available to today’s traveler, and The Retro Road Podcast is here to explore these types of travel and more: cool and doable vintage wanderings for the modern adventurer.Hosted by Mary Snyder and Melinda Garman, two friends bound by a love of Americana, travel, and humor, bring you their easy-to-implement tips based on many hours together in planes, trains, and automobiles. Oh, and boats. We can’t forget the boats! Through their somewhat zany stories (and always sometimes rambling banter), plus interviews with some of the nation’s best-kept secrets who are keeping her history alive, they give you the tools you need to stop talking about it and GET OUT THERE.
