Half of the guests we’re trying to book on Radio Times these days are away on vacation. So we’re talking today to the people whose work informs our decisions about where, how and when to go – travel writers. In this age of social media and GPS, where travel tips and maps are available at the tap of a screen, what is the role of the travel writer and how has it changed? And how does their travel, as professionals with a finished product in mind, differ from ours? Joining us in studio to discuss travel writing yesterday, today and tomorrow are HOWARD SHAPIRO, who was the longtime travel editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer and still writes for the Inky’s Travel section; and JASON WILSON, series editor of The Best American Travel Writing and editor of The Smart Set.
