An insider's guide to a better travel experience

I am really impressed with these guys. They go out of their way to produce a free podcast that covers changes in the airline industry, compares airlines, and most importantly, they outline techniques that the traveller can use to improve their experience. I always get their names confused (except for the eponymous "Hunter") but they have a good rapport. The moderator of the show does a great job of saying "wait, how does that work?" which is a question I often want to ask about the arcana of using "this" instrument for some "that" unpublicized purpose. The participants have varied airline program loyalties. This is often informative, but sometimes leads to vitriolic spats and boring jeremiads. But, mostly it's great. There are still many things that still confuse me, such as obtaining domestic lounge access via BMI Gold, using powerful but unfriendly trip planning tools, and the seemingly magical way that these guys are always in the front of the plane. But if it was all so easy, there'd be a bigger problem. Anyway, my thanks to the Upgrd guys for coming together so regularly with such good and entertaining info. Keep up the good work.

I'm hooked

The Upgrd podcasters are enthusiastic, funny, and informed. I look forward to each episode and like to listen while I fly. Often I laugh out loud and if other passengers look at me I just give them the iTunes address. Keep up the great work guys. I especially like the special guests and I hope you will have a few friendly competitions (like the predictions and terminal races) to keep things fresh. nmmercer

Learn to fly in style!

This is my favorite podcast out there. Just started listening to it a month ago and now I've had to download all of them since inception and catch up. The information provided is useful if you want to make the most of airline and hotel loyalty programs and travel in style and luxury. The guys make it fun and their different personalities work well together. Hunter is the bomb...HOLLA!
