Our voices are a defining quality of who we are—but often go underappreciated, argues Lake Bell. This week, Lale chats with the writer-actor-director-producer about her new audiobook with Pushkin Industries, ‘Inside Voice: My Obsession with How We Sound,' to find out just how much of our personal histories and travels are captured by our voices, and unpacks the power we possess—and the challenges we may face—when we speak.

Solo travel is lauded as one of the most exciting ways to see the world—and for good reason. It's adventurous, eye-opening, unpredictable, transformative. But it can also be challenging and, at some points, a little lonely, even for the most experienced of travelers. Lale chats with Jessica Nabongo, who in 2019 became the first documented Black woman to visit every country in the world (89 of which she visited solo), about what she learned about herself during those travels. Plus, we hear from listeners about their own solo travel experiences in Laos, Havana, and more. For more from Women Who Travel, visit our website or subscribe to our email newsletter.

The past six weeks have seen historic demonstrations sweep across Iran following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, with protesters—the majority of whom are women—taking to the streets to address the country's status quo. Lale chats with Iranian-American cookbook author Naz Deravian, whose book Bottom of the Pot: Persian Recipes and Stories, won a 2019 Julia Child Foundation award, to discuss the current uprising, how food both maintains and strengthens her bonds with the country, and the ways that food culture can help shape our understanding of a place.

The nights in the northern hemisphere are drawing in, which means whispering stories of witches and spirits are top of mind for many of us. Lale chats with Mexico City-based author Brenda Lozano, whose new novel Witches looks at the lives of Mexican women who inherit gifts, and draws inspiration from the true story of a Mazatec Indigenous healer, or curandera, in Oaxaca who worked with psilocybin mushrooms in the 1950s and 60s. Plus, we revisit a recent conversation with author Dorthe Nors to learn more about the burnings of witch effigies along the rugged Danish coast.

The world is a turbulent place in 2022, but it's often traveling—whether for pleasure or out of necessity—that can shine a light on the enduring kindness and hospitality of strangers. Lale chats with London-based actor, cookbook author, and theater producer Dina Mousawi about her work with refugees around the world, as well as her own Iraqi heritage, and Maria Romanenko, a Ukrainian journalist who fled her country the day after the Russian invasion and currently leads walking tours for other Ukrainian immigrants around Manchester. Plus, we hear from two listeners about getting rescued during their travels. For more from Women Who Travel, visit our website or subscribe to our email newsletter.

Having grown up exploring much of Europe by train, Lale takes a look at how rail travel can offer one of the most exciting—and interesting—ways to see a new place, and chats with author and journalist Monisha Rajesh about the time she took 80 train journeys around India, and later, the whole world, traversing the railways of Russia, Tibet, Canada, and more. Plus, we hear from a listener about a memorable Peruvian train ride, and catch up with a traveler in New York City on their way to see the fall colors.

Lale talks to two of her favorite authors about two cities that she’s most connected with—Rebecca Mead about London and Elif Batuman on Istanbul—and asks the question: What do you learn about a city by walking around it instead of driving through it? "You want to knit yourself into the fabric of a place and see your story knitted into it," says Mead. Plus, listeners contribute their own walking stories about Budapest, Dubrovnik, and Malta—all solo travelers who had unforgettable experiences thanks to the decision to explore a new place by foot.

It's been a challenging couple of years during the pandemic but we are starting to travel again. Host Lale Arikoglu determines that she needs to challenge herself and goes hiking in Chilean Patagonia in a misty, rainy, and isolated landscape. Closer to home she’s trying to stay upright on a surfboard at New York’s Rockaway beach even though she’s skittish in waves and talks to author Dorthe Nors about moving from Copenhagen to live along the wild North Sea coast of Denmark, a place known as ‘Cold Hawaii’ and home to a longstanding community of international surfers. Plus, we hear from listeners who hike pilgrimage trails in the depths of winter and scale the Alps in the 95-degree summer heat.

Though travel and adventure have historically been publicly claimed by men, women have always been part of those narratives, too. Each week, host and Condé Nast Traveler editor Lale Arikoglu shines a light on some of those stories, interviewing female-identifying guests about their most unique travel tales—from going off-grid in the Danish wilderness to country-hopping solo—sharing her own experiences traveling around the globe, and tapping listeners to contribute their own memorable stories. This is a podcast for anyone who is curious about the world—and excited to explore places both near and far from home.

“If women make 80 percent of the spending decisions in the American household, if we buy the beer and the food and the clothes, we're going to buy the weed,” says this week's guest Nidhi Lucky Handa. Nidhi, who launched LEUNE, a cannabis-forward lifestyle brand available in California and Arizona, joins us this week to talk all things weed—from the male-centric stereotypes that led her to launch LEUNE in the first place, the importance of cannabis criminal justice reform groups, what she wishes we all knew about dosage (she's a self-proclaimed "lightweight"), and more. This will be our last episode before we come back this summer with some new tricks up our sleeve! In the meantime, you can listen to previous episodes of Women Who Travel on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

There is little worse than coming home from your vacation feeling like you need an entire additional vacation to destress from your trip. So whether it's prepping at work beforehand to make sure you (and your colleagues) aren't stressed about the state of your inbox or finding a destination that will ensure you're truly taking time for yourself, this week we're talking all about the ways wellness plays into our travels. To chat relaxation strategies and offer some insight into why we're all craving wellness vacations (whatever shape that takes for you personally), we've tapped Traveler's senior features editor, Becca Misner, and Rebecca Platt, director of sales and marketing at Sunswept Resorts in St. Lucia.

If you're anything like us, this past winter has been a season of hunkering down and staying mostly inside—even if it was inside a bar, restaurant, or museum. But if the weather (and our seasonal allergies) are any indication, spring is here—which means summer adventures are just around the corner. So, this week, to get you kickstarted on summer planning and offer some inspo for getting yourself outside once again, we're joined by Emily Pennington, a Women Who Travel contributor and Outside’s national park columnist, and Megan Spurrell, Traveler's senior editor. We talk all things outdoors, from the best strategy for getting national park camp site permits to the women inspiring us to get moving.  Read a full transcription of the episode: cntraveler.com/story/how-to-get-yourself-moving-after-a-winter-of-hibernation-women-who-travel-podcast Follow Megan: @Spurrelly Follow Emily: @BrazenBackpacker Follow Lale: @lalehannah Follow Meredith: @ohheytheremere Follow Women Who Travel: @womenwhotravel Sign up for the newsletter: cntraveler.com/newsletter/subscribe Learn more about your ad choices.

As we say at the start of this week's podcast, “wellness” is a word that gets thrown around a lot—but defining what it is can be a real feat, and as it turns out, can mean something a little different to everyone. Joined by Evelyn Escobar, founder of Los Angeles-based Hike Clerb, and Shanika Hillocks, Women Who Travel contributor and brand strategy and marketing consultant, we're talking about all the different ways we're prioritizing wellness in our day-to-day lives and travels, from setting boundaries over email to making time for family and friends. As Evelyn says, “no one, unfortunately, is going to take care of you the way that you need, so we need to do it ourselves and be relentless in that pursuit.” Read a full transcription of the episode here: cntraveler.com/story/what-does-wellness-even-mean-these-days-women-who-travel-podcast Follow Evelyn: @EveMeetsWest, @HikeClerb Follow Shanika: @ShanikaHillocks Follow Lale: @lalehannah Follow Meredith: @ohheytheremere Follow Women Who Travel: @womenwhotravel Sign up for the newsletter: cntraveler.com/newsletter/subscribe Learn more about your ad choices.

When we started planning this episode, we thought we'd talk about the books we turn to for relaxation—the books that bring us moments of zen and let us find a sense of calm. But when we actually sat down with our guests—Lisa Lucas, publisher at Pantheon and Schocken Books, and Jynne Dilling Martin, deputy publisher at Riverhead Books—we realized that when the world is stressing us out, we turn to all sorts of book to help us decompress. So instead, this episode has a little bit of everything: non-fiction books that help us make sense of it all, sci-fi books that help us escape from it all, as well as poetry collections, comedies, fun romps, and so much more.  Find a full list of books mentioned and a transcription here: https://www.cntraveler.com/story/the-best-books-weve-read-recently-women-who-travel-podcast Follow Jynne: @Jynnnne Follow Lisa: @likaluca Follow Lale: @lalehannah Follow Meredith: @ohheytheremere Follow Women Who Travel: @womenwhotravel Sign up for the newsletter: cntraveler.com/newsletter/subscribe Learn more about your ad choices.

Ever stripped down for a visit to a Japanese onsen or nude hot spring? Or been stopped by the TSA for a sex toy you packed? How about had a no-strings-attached vacation fling? Whether you've tackled all of the above, are working up the confidence, or are simply curious about exploring the intersection of sex, travel, and self-love, our latest episode was made just for you. We're sitting down with Women Who Travel contributor, body image advocate, and sexual wellness expert Laura Delarato to talk about her soon-to-be-released book—My Pleasure: An Intimate Guide to Loving Your Body and Having Great Sex—and everything that goes along with discovering your pleasure (at home or on vacation). As expected, it's not particularly safe to listen to at work or around kids, but a no-holds-barred look at finding your self love, self worth, and boundaries in and out of the bedroom.  All products featured on Condé Nast Traveler are independently selected by our editors.

A special episode of the Women Who Travel podcast, presented by Fort Myers - Islands, Beaches and Neighborhoods. If you're anything like us, your first instinct is to cram as much as possible into a trip—from meals to bars to vintage shops to museums, the list goes on. We're here to tell you to slow down. This week, we're talking about slow travel, a way of moving through the world that's all about intention, observation, and yes, literally moving more slowly. To help you find your way, we invited Rachel Schwartzmann, a New York-based writer and the host of Slow Stories, a podcast all about slowing down in a digital world, and Melissa Donahue, owner and executive chef at Sweet Melissa's in sleepy Sanibel, Florida, to share their tactics for embracing slow travel, whether it's taking time off just to wander around your own neighborhood or prioritizing digital detoxes on vacation.

We're baaaack! And while we may be well past the official start to the year, talking all about the travel goals we're setting for ourselves in 2022 (and how actually we plan on reaching them) felt like the perfect way to kick off the new season of Women Who Travel. We called up senior editor Jessica Puckett and Condé Nast Traveler Middle East's editor-in-chief Sarah Khan to talk about our travel priorities for the year, how we're planning to book them (hello, points motherlode), and how our list of where we want to go has changed since we last spoke in December. Take it as encouragement to check in on your own travel goals (or set a few if you, like us, would rather just skip the first few months of the year).

"if you're an introvert, pretend you're an extrovert." What an insulting recommendation! As an introvert, great ways to solo travel, but get to know the people and places around you, are to go to museums/exhibits where you may find others with similar interests (and thus, conversation starters). I find walking tours and museum tours to be great ways to meet new people as well.
