EPIC TRAVEL SHOW - Real stories from real people.

We want to create a Travel show that that is much more than the travel shows you see on TV or the Shows you follow on Youtube a show with which you can interact and help create, where you get actual valid information about travelers and not some paid endorsement (which will always be mentioned if something is paid for).

Furthermore we want to give fresh creators the possibility to come on our show and present themselves to our audience and show us what is unique about them and if our community likes them, help them and support them, maybe even send them off to a country to film for us and be part of the show on a more regular basis.
