A podcast by consumer advocate Christopher Elliott. For more information and to get exclusive early access, go to Elliott Confidential:


He threatened to knock our heads off. So we made a podcast about him.

OK, technically, he threatened to “knock our ugly heads off our shoulders” — and he dropped a couple of “F”-bombs, too.

Our crime? I was filming my son, Iden, working on a cocktail recipe for his website. And this guy at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa, thought we had taken a picture of him, and forcefully demanded that we delete it.

We didn’t.

We were afraid he would come after us after we left the food market, but he didn’t. But that got us to thinking about security. How do you find a safe place to travel? How do you avoid dangerous places?

That’s the topic of this week’s Elliott Confidential podcast.

We also talk about our latest radio interview with our friends at the Travel Guys Radio Show in Sacramento, Calif.
