About Us

What’s the most sure-fire way to get a flight upgrade? How can you find the best, secret local restaurants by asking just one question? What's the first thing you should do when you get into a hotel room? On Travel Genius, we'll give you those answers—and plenty more—as hosts Nikki Ekstein and Mark Ellwood quiz the world’s most experienced globetrotters for their tried-and-true travel hacks.

Latest Episodes

On Butter and Bourdain

This week’s episode of Travel Genius gets competitive in a way that has little to do with the dings of the hotel bell. We’re talking about competitive travel: an entire subculture of people whose mission is, quite simply, to go everywhere—and to check the most obscure boxes off their bucket lists faster than anyone else. Then, chef Eric Ripert—the toque behind New York’s three-Michelin-starred Le Bernardin—shares howto find the best cookbook store in the world. He also discusses his adventures with his late, great friend, Anthony Bourdain.

Let’s Make a Travel Deal

This week we’re hitting a high note, literally. Schele Williams—who came up in the Broadway world as the “Seasons of Love” soloist in RENT—pulls back the curtain on her tried-and-true travel hacks, which are as wide-ranging as her singing voice. Also, Mark and Nikki focus this week on the ultimate currency calculations—the destinations where your dollar will go farthest.

Coming Soon: The Pay Check Season 2

The Pay Check is back for a second season! For the next six weeks, we’re going to dig into the number one reason women still make less money than men: Motherhood. Women start their careers earning just about the same as men do, but once they have their first kid, that pay gap grows to a chasm. This season, we’ll show you how this “motherhood penalty” plays out for real women, in real life and how it affects the global economy.
