Smack Hospitality Cast
The world's most
entertaining hospitality podcast

SMACK’s hospitality podcast is geared towards introducing key decision makers of the industry to a larger audience in every corner of the world. The choice of guests, which we invite to the show, is largely based on whether they can bring an aspect or story to the SMACK community that we haven’t had on the show yet and whether they are entertaining and engaging to communicate with. Nothing on this hospitality podcast is scripted, there are no pre-recorded interviews, no pre-discussed questions – every episode is recorded in one take and not edited.

One of our 4 hosts leads through every episode of the hospitality podcast and welcomes guests from ever part of the hospitality industry, including the world of hotels, airlines, theme parks, cruise lines, DMOs, stadiums, events and many more.

Enjoy the show!
