After an extended holiday weekend, TravelPulse Radio co-hosts Tim Wood and Barry Kaufman are back for another episode. The eighth installment features a pair of interviews with fellow TravelPulse editors and plenty of hot topic discussion.

First up this week is TravelPulse senior cruise editor Jason Leppert, who joins the conversation at the 6:45 mark to break down the surprising news surrounding Carnival Corp.'s Fathom brand and what's next for social impact cruising.

Later, the co-hosts discuss some of the hottest topics in travel (beginning at the 23:00 mark), including taking a closer look at TravelPulse contributer Paul Thompson's recent story on how airports are working to prevent bird strikes.

"You feel for the birds because we're invading their space," said Wood, who tells the story of the time he was aboard a flight that struck a bird. 

"It's a scary situation."

Other topics include the most recent Disney news and the opening of Ludacris' new Southern-style soul food restaurant inside of Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Finally, TravelPulse senior editor Michael Schottey joins the show at the 55:00 mark to talk about his recent trip to El Salvador and explains what makes it "one of the most underrated tourism destinations on the continent."
