210: Ten Years in Thailand with Scott Eddy
Today’s guest is one I had the pleasure of meeting in one of the many places he considers home, Bangkok. He took me to a cigar and whiskey bar in which they were projecting Buster Keaton on the brick wall and had a jazz singer in the corner. After a day spent on Khao San Road, and the backpacker scene there, this was a whole different side of Bangkok. The whole place felt a lot more New York than it did back alley Thailand. And that’s how where I got to know Scott Eddy, a former...

205: Being the Most Traveled Person with Mike Spencer Bown
"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...
204: Change Your Role in Life with Jacqueline Kehoe
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."

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...
