Amy & Nick Thomson are the husband and wife team who co-founded ANT Podcast Management and co-host the What the Pho Travel Podcast.

On What the Pho, Amy and Nick set out to take listeners on a journey as they document their experiences travelling to different countries all over the world, immersing themselves in local cultures. And the great thing about the show is, if they don’t like somewhere, they’ll tell you about it. Unlike some other travel podcasts, there’s no sugar coating here.

Due to the pandemic they’ve had to put the show on hiatus till they’re able to travel without restrictions again. But they’ve used that time off to ramp up the growth of their podcast production and editing company ANT Podcast Management. At we’ve worked with Amy & Nick on several production projects and the quality of their work speaks for itself. When it comes to post-production they’re really got their processes nailed down and refined.

As well as giving practical hands-on advice you can apply to your own show, the pair also share some great stories about the interesting things they’ve been up to on their travels. In this interview, James Deeney speaks to Amy and Nick about how they first got involved in podcasting, best practices for producing content, and how to tap into local cultures when travelling.
