Episode 26: Germophobic Breakdown

Queen Simone starts by sharing the awesome news of being featured in 2 Pods A Day, which helps expose others to independent podcasts! 

The theme for this week in travel news is “don’t do stupid stuff while traveling.”  She features three news stories that will make you shake your head.  Her tip for the week stems from a traumatic germ-ridden experience (and after hearing her story and what researchers say, you’ll think twice about using that seat back pocket).  She answers a question on how to unclog your ears after flying.
