PODCASTS and more…

Podcasts are audio programs, and we love the world of radio. I started in radio trained by the BBC back in 1972. So, occasionally, we make radio-styled programs. Podcasts, or podcasts like interviews on YouTube.

Here is where you can find our podcasts.



Cruising with Doris Visits also takes place in a fun podcast. We have episodes on cruise ship comedians, and on magicians, and we have started to interview cruise ship celebrities.

These are filmed podcasts, where we go to places like the Abba Museum, or talk to cruise employees, cruise acts, and cruise celebrities.

Meet Marty Kristian the lead singer and star of the 70s hit band The New Seekers, or Royal Photographer Ken Lennox or, Holby City star Robert Daws who all work regularly on cruise ships.
