    Trek Nepal : Melanie Rose

    Trek Nepal : Melanie Rose

    As the host and designer on the Netflix series, How to Build a Sex Room, Melanie Rose lives, breathes and shares passion with everything and everyone she touches. Yet, like most of us, we are rarely one dimensional. Neither is Melanie Rose. In this uniquely fun interview, Melanie shares one of the items she crossed off her bucket list that she is most passionate about, trekking through Nepal. Roger and Melanie's conversation is less about floggers and shibari rope and all about Melanie's experience of traveling in remote areas, using interesting potties and climbing trees to escape a momma rhino. This episode will make you laugh, feel a little queasy and most importantly, challenge you to look at your passions and your bucket list in more than one dimension.

Inspiration to act on your dreams

I was delighted and honored to be a guest on the show (Valencia, Spain), and also inspired to hear the great stories shared by other guests. This podcast is a wonderful source of inspiration and motivation to help you honor your dreams, whatever they may be.

Love Roger’s convos!

I had the pleasure of being a guest on Roger’s show, and he’s a wonderful host! I feel like he really cares about the stories of people tell and it comes across in all of his interviews. Plus, he’s just a cool dude. In an already over saturated podcast market this is one show that is worth taking the time to listen to!

Bearman5t ,

He practices what he preaches!

I love the subject and format of the show. I was lucky enough to be a guest. It was a fun conversation - and here’s the best part: Roger is based out of Seattle - but when we talked he was in Italy, crossing an item off his bucket list.

Roger helps his listeners and clients get the most out of life. Great job!
