RVTravel.com is the country’s pre-eminent recreational vehicle website. It reports on every conceivable component of tthe ever-expanding industry. It has expert text and video, twice-weekly newsletters, daily tips, a huge social media presence and a forum. Its new feature is a weekly podcast.
Scott Linden, a long-time television and radio broadcaster and an avid RVer, is the host of the podcast which debuted in early April.
Linden our guest on episode #176 of The Weekly Driver Podcast.
Co-host Bruce Aldrich and I discuss with Scott the back story of how he started the podcast via his friendship with Chuck Woodbury, the publisher of RVTravel.com. Scott also details how he plans to host the podcast and topics it will cover every Sunday.
“There’s so much to be done in the works of RVing,” Linden says. “Especially now when there are some many people trying it for the first time. That’s probably the most exciting part about it for me is trying to help people have more fun.
A long-time hunter and fisherman, Linden will combine his television and broadcast experience and enjoyment of RVing into the podcast every Sunday.
RVTravel.com is the industry’s leading website
“Podcasting is much like radio broadcasting,” he says. “Yet one advantage podcasting has over radio is that you can listen to podcasts on your own schedule. The library of past episodes is always available if you happen to miss a good topic.”
Linden will strive to make the podcasts about topics RVers want to know about. He won’t make it a show geared toward his interests.
“I want to cover topics of interest to them instead of what’s of interest to me,” he says. “The feedback has been very positive. We are really ringing the bell of a lot of folks.”
The new podcast is available on RVTravel.com and will soon expand to popular podcast outlets.
