I have put together a website for audio stories as well as written. I am about out of my own stories but you can listen to a few of them in itunes just search for travel trade exchange podcast in itunes.

I really hope that others contribute their own stories otherwise the site dies..... You can either load your own mp3 file or use a call in line to leave a story then they will be posted at the site and perhaps used in the podcast.

Please give me feedback if you can.

some of the episodes include:
Episode 1

In this podcast I outline my goal in setting up this podcast and the companion web site. It is my hope that the audio podcast is entertaining and informative and that the web site becomes an active and useful source if information where the participants generate the content by exchanging travel stories and services with each other.
Stories services and Podcasts will searchable by the area of interest of the users.
