Flight of Fancy podcast: Travel boycotts - where would you refuse to go?

Is there anywhere in the world you wouldn't go? I know that seems a strange question to ponder while so many of us are unable to leave our local government areas right now, but still, it's worth considering.

Is there any country you would refuse to visit? Any nation that you just couldn't bring yourself to go to for political reasons? Any place you would boycott entirely?

That's what we're talking about today: the politics of travel. The power we all have as travellers to visit or not to visit, to partake or not to partake – what that power means, and how we choose to harness it. When the world opens up again these decisions will be ours to make. And we all want to ensure we're making the right ones.

On this episode of Flight of Fancy, I'm joined by Traveller.com.au managing editor Craig Platt and writer Ute Junker to talk about the politics of the travel experience, and the power we have as travellers to influence the world around us. Do you believe in boycotts? Do you try to travel ethically in countries that may seem inherently the opposite? What's right and what's wrong? Where do you draw the line? And does it even matter?

This Flight of Fancy episode is hosted and produced by Ben Groundwater and mixed by Tim Mummery.
