Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer

Tom Wilmer’s Lowell Thomas Award-winning travel podcast — recorded live on location across America and around the world — showcases the arts, culture, music, nature, history, science, wine and spirits, brewpubs, the culinary arts and more. He covers nouns and verbs: people, places, things, and action — everything from baseball to exploring South Pacific atolls, and interviewing the "real" Santa Claus in the Arctic. Tom's feature, recorded live at Harland & Wolfe Shipyards in Belfast Northern Ireland, celebrating the centenary of the launch of the Titanic was the recipient of a Best Travel award from Outdoor Writers Association of California.
