Ask HPL: Ask a Question for the New Podcast!

Do you have a burning question to ask Her Packing List?

It can be anything involving travel gear, packing advice (except for packing lists), or female travel in general. Yep, we’re dropping A’s to your Q’s on the soon-to-launch HPL Podcast!

Asking your question is SO easy, and it goes a bit like this:

1) Record your question using our handy SpeakPipe app linked below. It’s free to leave me (Brooke) a voicemail, and you can do it from anywhere in the world! Ask a question about packing, gear, or female travel.

2) Keep it short. Under 1 minute is recommended.

3) Introduce yourself before the question. If you have a blog or business, you are able to mention it once, along with a URL. For example, “Hi Her Packing List! I’m Brooke from Aroamas at I have a question about…”

This question will be put directly into the podcast recording!

4) That’s it! If your question is chosen to be featured, you will be notified by email around the time of the podcast going live- and you’ll get a special gift from me, too.

Your Special Gift

Ok, spoiler alert… if your question gets chosen for air, you will get a free Aroamas solid perfume stick sent to you, anywhere in the world!

Written by Brooke

I run the show at Her Packing List and love packing ultralight. In fact, I once traveled for 3 entire weeks with just the contents of a well-packed 12L handbag. When I'm not obsessing over luggage weight, I'm planning adventures or just snuggling with my pet rabbit, Sherlock Bunz.

    I’ve submitted one! Just to make certain, is it supposed to be sent to your email provided in the HPL contact info?

    I look forward to listening to your podcast.

  2. Koots says

    How many questions are we allowed to ask? I keep thinking of questions, but I don’t want to flood your inbox!

    Also, when might we be expecting the release?

    • Brooke says

      Ask as many as you want! People are proving to be a bit shy with the recordings. I’m hoping to launch in May. I have to put together several podcasts before I start releasing, along with all the little bits that go along with it (like getting an intro / outro created- been looking into that today).

  3. Koots says

    Sounds good. I’ll write them down when I think of them and submit a couple of them to you soon.

    For everyone else, start asking! The process to submit your question is incredibly simple!
