Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven welcomed Janelle Nanos, editor of National Geographic‘s Intelligent Travel blog.

Janelle discussed some of the things she covers on her blog, including her upcoming trip to Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. “The thing about travel right is…it’s still very much doable,” she said. “We’re all still struggling with the economy but now is actually one of the best times to be traveling because it’s cheaper than ever and there are so many deals out there that if you look for them you can really make your money go a lot farther.”

Also discussed: IAC‘s Barry Diller‘s not so positive prediction about Twitter’s business model at Sun Valley and “unconscious plagiarism.”
