That would be The Life Edit, Yahoo Life's brand new podcast, where each episode, senior lifestyle editor Flic Everett speaks to the experts about the big topics on our radar.

The latest episode of the Life Edit podcast is all about how to holiday post-pandemic. 

Senior Lifestyle Editor Flic welcomes Yahoo travel writer Anya Meyerowitz to talk big family getaways, childhood nostalgia, and how to take your pet on a trip without going barking mad.

"Thousands of people got dogs during the pandemic" says Anya, "There's now a much greater need for holiday properties to allow dogs, and one of the joys of a staycation is that you get to take your pet. There's now even a hotel in London doing afternoon tea for dogs."

Anya also explains why 'Gramping' is the latest trend (going on holiday with grandparents mean everyone has fun and parents get a break) and the reason holidays with big groups of friends are no longer limited to Magaluf madness in your Twenties.
