Are you ready to travel again but your bank account is not? Why not travel like George Igoe in his new show, George Goes Everywhere? In the new series, George visits major cities and only spends $100 while there. George Goes Everywhere is an entertaining, light hearted and funny (George has got a lot of jokes!) travel show that showcases the lesser known spots in popular cities, and he finds a ton of things to do that are completely free! I had the pleasure of chatting with George about his new show and I'm so excited to share our interview!

Who is George Igoe? Well if you haven't been lucky enough to watch his "Rich Travel/Poor Travel" series, then you need to hop on over to his YouTube channel right now and check it out.
But, even if you haven't seen Geroge Igoe before, chances are you have watched something he's worked on, like perhaps "Family Guy", "The Cleveland Show", or "Mike and Molly".
I recently had the chance to chat with George Igoe and ask him some questions about his new series, "George Goes Everywhere". We talked about everything from how he picked $100 as his budget, to laundromats that were also bars (a pretty genius idea when you really stop and think about it).

George Goes Everywhere | Making the Show
I feel it is important for me to note that George Goes Everywhere was filmed prior to travel restrictions, mask requirements and nonessential businesses shutting down.
When I asked George how he traveled from city (and who with) he explained that he only traveled with one other person, his field producer!
How did he film the show? George explains, "when we're on the road I primarily do all of the camera work myself, I kind of do the selfie cam primarily or I have a suction cup tripod".
If you're wondering why $100? George says "it's neither a small amount of money or a large amount of money. It felt like it kind of threaded that needle of the amount someone could realistically afford if they were traveling".
"It's worth its weight in gold"
George Goes Everywhere | Researching Cities
On his show George finds lot of gems! He is not hitting the typical tourist spots by any means!
Finding such cool places takes planning and research, I asked George about process of researching each city and he had this to say, "I was researching a couple of weeks before we were there". He went on to say that for each city it was possible that he would research "a couple of hours, probably at least 5 or maybe more hours researching, kind of digging into a place and seeing what is cool there".
"One of my favorite things to hear actually, is someone who lives in a city and they watch the show and they say 'I've never heard of any of this stuff, I've lived here for 20 years and I've never heard of this' and I'm like, yes! That means I've hit my mark"
I had so much fun chatting with George, he shares a lot more about his show, if he has plans to film more in the future and he talks about a notable restaurant that he was recommended once already in a city to film!
