The Miles to Memories Podcast Episode One
It is finally here! We have been teasing about the Miles to Memories Podcast for a while on social media and launch day is upon us. Myself, Shawn and Joe Cheung (from asthejoeflies and the Observation Deck podcast) will be getting together every week. Each episode will be about 45 minutes long and we will cover the latest travel news plus anything interesting in the miles and points world. This week we will be dropping a second episode on Saturday so be on the lookout for that as well!
Episode One Details
In the inaugural episode we discuss hacking Las Vegas with Amex FHR credits, the situation in Hong Kong, and why Disney is the “worst vacation ever.” Or is it? We finish off the show with introductions and background info on Mark, Joe, and dishwashers. Make sure you listen after the end credits for some funny outtakes!
