The Trip is a podcast from Luminary Media and Roads & Kingdoms, an online journal of travel, food, and politics. Started with Anthony Bourdain and foreign correspondent Nathan Thornburgh, now hosted by Nathan, each episode breaks the seal on a bottle somewhere in the world, from Havana to the Himalayas, to talk about everything from jungle hallucinogens to Andalusian cave cooking. New episodes drop each Monday. Illustrations by Daisy Dee. Beats by Dan the Automator. Artwork by Edel Rodriguez.
