Three weeks ago we launched our new weekly Skift Podcast, and three episodes in we know we have something good on hand based on all the great feedback so far.

For those who haven’t yet listened, we have collected them in this one post, below. This is a venue where we sit down with creatives, executives, and entrepreneurs from across the industry to discuss their insights and perspectives on the how and why of travelers’ habits, industry patterns, and the seismic changes happening to each.

The Skift Podcast is underwritten by the FutureCities initiative from MasterCard. Find out more at futurecities.skift.com. Start listening to The Skift Podcast, today! Subscribe via iTunes,Soundcloud or RSS.
