  1. I like Travel guides but I tape it because I have a problem with the OTT family, the three mates putting each other down and the not too knowledgeable country pair that way I can FF and get to the interesting bits the other couples comment on. Kevin, Janetta, Matt and Brett are great because I feel they appreciate the travel aspect more and don’t appear to be the best “on show”. I like 1% Club too because it’s all about logical thinking not general knowledge but I tape it too with the sound down because Jim is rather a loud and proud Aussie voice that my aging eardrums find hard to process and it gives me time to pause and figure out the answers because my brain is aging too. 😂
