Today I’m excited to officially announce our very first podcast: Talking Points.

Every Tuesday, you’ll hear from me, The Points Guy, as I sit down with with CEOs, CMOs and executives in the points-and-miles world who are changing the way we travel — industry leaders like Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic and the Virgin Group, and Kristin Lemkau from JP Morgan Chase. And then each week, you’ll also get insight from TPG writers and editors to find out how you too can travel the world for a fraction of the cost.

Our first episode features Matt Knise, Capital One’s Business Analysis and Product Management Director.  He shares some incredible news with me that Capital One cardholders — especially those who have been considering the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card — are going to be pretty excited about. But the only way to find out that news right now is to tune into Talking Points.

Here’s where you can find our show…
