Hi! I’m Marilyn Ball, your host of the iHeart Media radio show/podcast, Speaking of Travel, broadcast each Sunday morning at 10:00 am on 570 WWNC. And you can listen anytime on the IHeart Radio app, Buzzsprout, TuneIn and other popular podcast platforms.

My guests share inspiring, uplifting and enriching travel stories. From simple experiences like discovering new customs or tasting exotic food to the more adventurous ones like scuba diving, traveling can really push your boundaries to the core. And that’s a good thing! Travel helps you appreciate who you are.

The truth is, no matter where you go, and no matter how long you’re gone, you always come home with a new outlook on life.

And it’s so easy to stream past episodes 24/7 by clicking on the button below.
