Here’s the third TravelCommons podcast, each segment recorded in a different place. This week, after 7 flights in 5 days, I seem to be on quite a tear on the TSA. I talk about bad TSA experiences at Chicago Midway and good ones at O’Hare, Tampa, and Columbus, OH. Also, I talk about using the iPod to reduce travel stress and the first Classic Travel Story– about Cleveland travelers eager to get to Chicago. Here’s a direct link to the podcast file.
