With Talking Points now well into its first season, we’re launching a second podcast award travelers will love. Hitting your favorite podcast app each Wednesday morning, Miles Away focuses on a new destination every week, detailing why you’ll want to visit, how to get there and where to stay — of course making the most of loyalty programs wherever you can along the way.

On the first episode, TPG‘s Darren Murph joins me (your host, Zach Honig) on a journey to French Polynesia, helping you plan an incredible adventure to the islands of Bora Bora, Tahiti and Moorea.

You can play the first episode of Miles Away above, or listen and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts, including:

As Darren explains on the podcast, there’s a lot to look forward to in French Polynesia:

“French Polynesia is hands-down one of the world’s most spectacular otherworldly places. It is completely extraordinary in every way. The water color is unlike you’ll see anywhere else in the world. The culture there is very unique. The food is incredible. Then the resort quality there is exceptional. And it’s also in a unique part of the world where they don’t really have the wind and water effects and damage that hurricanes can bring. So what that allows them to do is build overwater bungalows similar to what you’d find in the Maldives.”

And there are many overwater bungalows to choose from, including plenty of options you can book with points, including the Hilton Moorea and the St. Regis Bora Bora, pictured below.

We’re also hosting a giveaway to celebrate the launch. One lucky listener will walk away with a $500 gift card — see my Instagram post above for instructions to enter.

I’d love to hear from you after the giveaway, too! If you have any questions, thoughts or topics you’d like us to cover, please email me at milesaway@thepointsguy.com, tweet at me @zachhonig or find me on Instagram — I’m @zachhonig there as well. And please don’t forget to subscribe!
