It’s been a busy last few days. Thanksgiving was fortunately full of a lot of sitting around and drinking wine, but then there was the inevitable return to an inbox full of emails and a to do list too long to even begin thinking about. But in the hectic days of last week, I forgot to post about launching podcasts over at Wend!
Now you can listen to feature stories from Wend writers as well as interviews with global adventurers, all conducted by yours truly. It’s an exciting project and I’m stoked to do more. Check out our first two that we posted last week. The first is Across the Andes, the first section of a two part story about Gregg Treinish and Deia Schlosberg, who trekked the entire length of the Andes and were just named National Geographic Adventurers of the Year! You can listen to them reading their moving story, which is just as inspiring as when you read it yourself!
The second podcast is a personal favorite: an interview with French writer and traveler Alexandre Poussin. Poussin and his wife trekked from the Cape of Good Hope to the Sea of Galilee in an incredibly epic journey, which has been recently documented in the book Africa Trek and currently running as a PBS series. It was an honor to chat with him (and fun as well). You can check out the podcasts — and others coming soon — at Wend’s Digital Story Project.
