    Do you enjoy camping? 


    I was a campground manager in a state forest for two years when I was in college, and I never slept there. I like sleeping in beds.

    In the last episode, my guest Kathi and I talked about the Scottish Isles you need to visit. Today Kathi is back to talk about Wild Camping. What’s that?

    Cheap Flights! Get the Best Airfare Through Serendipitous Travel

    Cheap Flights! Get the Best Airfare Through Serendipitous Travel

    What’s the cheapest flight you ever got? It felt kind of thrilling to get that deal, didn’t it? Set your trip off on the right foot?


    Today I’m joined by Scott Keyes of Scott’s Cheap Flights. He’s got a new book out called Take More Vacations, which discusses his travel philosophy and also all his best tips on how to find the cheapest airfare, best accommodation prices, and more. But this isn’t just about saving a buck, it’s about traveling better.


    Scott’s Cheap Flights is a service that sends you email alerts when deals pop up for the airports you’re interested.


    You may have noticed that flight prices are all over the map. You check online and see one price, check an hour later and see it’s gone up. Scott says this isn’t because of cookies on your computer, which is a popular myth. In this episode, you’ll learn why airfare is so volatile and what you can do to make sure you don’t overpay.

    Czechoslovakia: Post-Communist Expat Adventures

    Czechoslovakia: Post-Communist Expat Adventures

    Czechoslovakia doesn’t exist anymore. But it did when my American friend moved there in the early 1990s. 


    Today, we tend to think of Europe as being one of the most free regions of the world. Pro-human rights. It can be difficult to imagine how many Central and Eastern Europeans lived under Communism until the revolutions of 1989.


    The Communist regime in Czechoslovakia was brutal until the people kicked them out in what is known as the Velvet Revolution for how smoothly it seemed to go. Fun fact, Shirley Temple Black, yes, the actress Shirley Temple, was U.S. Ambassador to Czechoslovakia at the time and was involved in all this. 


    Back then, my friend Jim Lukach a creative writing grad student, but the buzz of post-Communist Europe called. He packed up everything and moved to the Slovak side of Czechoslovakia to teach. 


    He joins me today to talk about his expat experience in the early 90s and whether we can ever truly go native in our adopted countries.

    What is Worth Risking Everything for? On Character, Mentorship, and Heroism

    What is Worth Risking Everything for? On Character, Mentorship, and Heroism

    In 2015, Donald Trump said that the only reason people say Senator John McCain was a war hero was because he was captured. And he doesn't like people who are captured.


    In this episode, I’m going to tell you why the late Senator McCain earned the title of war hero. 


    But why am I bringing this up now? 


    This episode isn't about politics. It's about character. Living a life of good character and finding mentors who live up to those standards. 


    This week I read, “Courage Under Fire,” an essay by Admiral James Stockdale, another war hero who was captured and tortured for years during the Vietnam War.


    He credits Stoicism with helping him survive, and the words of Epictetus in particular. 



    The Stoics believed that it was very important to have mentors, who can be people you know, or ancient philosophers.


    Nearly 2,000 years ago, Galen, the doctor of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, was writing about this. As I’ve mentioned before on this podcast, modern therapy, specifically cognitive behavioral therapy, has its roots in Stoicism. Galen talked about the importance of finding mentors who are living the life that you want to live from a moral perspective. People you admire who can help guide your life.
