About the 52 Perfect Days Podcast

67 million Americans listen to podcasts monthly

The 52 Perfect Days audio Podcast will launch on June 1, 2018.

Each episode will run between 15-20 minutes and focus on a handful of questions and topics to share the best about your destination.

This show isn’t meant to cover every aspect of your destination. It is meant to share a part of your story and provide the listeners new reasons to visit.

What is beyond the surface? What is a great aspect of your destination that visitors don’t know?

This travel podcast is about Destinations and I am looking for tips to visit a location “like a local” and insider info. The podcast is not about focusing on the obvious. So, if you are pitching South Dakota, we won’t be focusing on Mount Rushmore and the top 10 list on Trip Advisor.

52 Perfect Days Podcast Interview Process

Each episode will run between 15-20 minutes and focus on a handful of questions and topics to share the best about your destination.

Step One: Introduction of Guest (approximately 1 minute)

Step Two: The laundry list (approximately 30 seconds)

This is your opportunity to share your big selling points. What your location is most known for. The obvious. Bragging rights. Why your destination is already on the map.

  • What not to share: generic descriptions such as “Great restaurants” or “Wonderful hotels”.
  • What to share: Specific attractions, heritage/UNESCO sites, what most people know about your destination.
  • Example for San Diego County: San Diego has world-class beaches dotted along the Pacific Ocean, nearly perfect year-round weather, San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, Home of Comicon, Beautiful Balboa Park with XX museums, Del Mar Races, Legoland and the iconic Del Coronado Hotel.
  • Note: Names only — no descriptions. These are the things your destination is famous for and people can easily research on the internet.

Step Three: Top 5 x 5 (approximately 12 minutes)

This is a focused discussion about five specific things to do/ topics/places to visit in the destination. This is your chance to share a side of your destination that isn’t being told and isn’t widely known.

Choose any five topics from below or choose topics of your choice own such as:

For example:

Top 5 family-friendly things
Top 5 Romantic places
5 Neighborhoods worth visiting
5 Great places to find street art
5 Beautiful Instagrammable Spots
5 Extreme Adventure Activities
5 Best Beaches/Hikes/Ski Resorts/Bike Trails/Romantic hotels/Museums/Parks/Outdoor Activities

Step Four: Weather and When to Go (approximately 1 minute)

  • Details: High Season, low season, best months to visit & why.
  • For example — Visit San Diego in September or October because you’ll find the best weather and no crowds as well as cheaper hotel rates.

Step Five: How to spend a perfect day in your destination (approximately 2 minutes)

This section can focus on any of the above five topics or can be your personal favorite way to spend a day in your location. One more chance to share your destination by painting a picture of one perfect day!

Note: There should be a theme (family, outdoors, luxury, budget, cultural, heritage, foodie, wine, beer, etc).

Step Six: Pitch Your Destination (up to 2 minutes)

This is where you can share all the additional great aspects of your location! What else should a visitor know? What are other great reasons there for visiting your destination?
