Indie Travel PodcastCraig Martin and his wife Linda graduated school in 2006 and both had the idea to leave and teach English in foreign countries. Along the way, they started the Indie Travel Podcast before anyone knew what podcasts were. 8 years later, they haven’t stopped and today, while she continues to teach, he runs a travel media company, Indie Travel Media – which does hosting, management, and production for companies, mainly travel brands.
