"Good people greatly outnumber nasty people, worldwide. There is a network that existed long before facebook, and it is the network of persons of good will, who will introduce and pass you to other persons of good will, such that you can take a friendly look around a town, a nation or the world, as you like. There is no similar network among nasty people, they are on their own, and if you know what is good for you, leave them alone." – Mike Spencer Bown

23 years of adventures spent wandering the world has led Michael Bown to visiting every country and every region on Earth, from war-torn Mogadishu to living with pygmies in the Congo, all of this giving him credence to lay claim to the title of the world’s most travelled person in human history. This is not simple. Hitchhiking, multiple arrests in foreign countries, multiple bouts of malaria. But that’s the point. It’s the willingness to endure challenge, and the kindness of the strangest of strangers that delivers the story we’re looking for.

And today we get to know Mike Spencer Bown. In this piece, we explore the time Mike's spent in solitude living in the woods and how this has prepared and conditioned him for a life of perpetual travel to everywhere on this planet.

In this episode, we get into Mike's time spent in solitude living in the woods and how that experience conditioned him to become a perpetual traveler capable of going to everywhere in the world.

Jacqueline Kehoe is a travel writer and the author behind The Strange and New, a name taken from a poem that ends with a couplet which I grabbed from her website:
"...But they're always tired of the things that are

and they want the strange and new."
I believe those two lines describe people like us, certainly me and perhaps you. In Jacqueline's words, those lines are meant "for those who have their traveling paint set in hand, who globe-trot to become, and who yearn for experiences that are really just a series of interesting guesses." 

A single trip to Viet Nam lasted longer than this midwestern girl expected and today, from North Carolina, she's channeling a love of travel into narrative style prose. I'm excited in this episode to get into who Jacqueline is, where that perspective comes from, what happened in Viet Nam, her backstory and travels and how theater, like travel, might offer a glimpse into how it feels to try on different masks.

Beth Whitman is the editor and mind behind Wanderlust and Lipstick, where she bills herself as a contemporary wanderer and women’s travel expert, leading women-only and coed adventure tours that go from places like Santa Fe to Bhutan and New Guinea.

Once upon a time, Beth took a 3 month trip around the US at age 20, an experience that would catalyze her career in travel and a desire to venture further into the world.

Today, she is no stranger to adventure having completed the Snowman Trek in Bhutan, ridden a motorcycle from the Pacific Northwest to Panama, and backpacked all over Asia and Oceania. Beth and I met briefly at The White House Summit for Study Abroad and Global Citizenship and in this episode, you'll get to know her further.

After nine years as a celebrity gossip columnist in New York City, Kelly Will sold everything she owned to cross all 50 of the United States for one year — a social experiment she undertook to try to find more connection and build community into her life.
Today, she’s gearing up to launch her book, Willful, and a new company to help others find connection and purpose from the things they do.
I’m excited to explore Kelly’s reasons for taking such a trip — and broadcasting it in the way that she did, and the effects that the experience have had on her life and person.
