Peaceful Talk with Pico Iyer

Next week, I’ll be conducting about 40 interviews in six days for my public radio program, Travel with Rick Steves. In preparation, I was listening to a few of our recent interviews, and found this one, with Pico Iyer, particularly engrossing. I find him both a blessing and an inspiration. Listen and take some time to ponder the ways travel can bring us peace and provide an oasis from our hectic day-to-day lives.

By the way, we’ve been producing radio shows filled with interviews like this for the last eight years. That’s about 400 hour-long programs, and they’re all available for free at

Do you already tune in to my radio show? Do you listen to it via podcast?  What was your favorite interview?
