The Pioneering California Now Podcast Celebrates 50th Episode

By Kayla Bell 01/25/2021

The California Now Podcast celebrated 50 episodes on Jan. 25 — a remarkable accomplishment as it remains the only podcast from a major U.S. destination.

The 50th Episode
The landmark 50th episode, Trip Planning in 2021 is aligned with National Plan for Vacation Day, which starts Jan. 26 and is especially important this year as U.S. destinations seek to restart domestic tourism. In the episode, host Soterios Johnson interviews three industry experts who speak to the relationship between travel and wellbeing and 2021 travel trends.
