On Vacation With My AI July 14, 2017

This week, the hosts explore the somewhat useful, frequently frustrating world of travel apps.



It's summer, you've got places to go. Or maybe just places you'd like to go, but can't, because you can't figure out how to get there, because there's no app for that. There should be. This week, while Arielle pivots to video for a day, Michael and David explore the somewhat useful, frequently frustrating world of travel apps. Then they debate the ratio of pants to travel days, and how to avoid getting stuck on a plane with nothing to do.

Some notes: Our coverage of Google Trips. Some apps we mention: Google Calendar, Tripit, TripCase, Airbnb. Mike's recommendation was the podcast "A Piece of Work," which now has two episodes! David's was super-spy novel Orphan X.
