    #64 - Liz Stewart in Kansas City

    Liz Stewart returns to the podcast to tell the next chapter in her journey, as Kenny catches up with her in Kansas City to start 2021. From her past two appearances you've heard how she organized the March for Marijuana in Alabama, then bailed on it and disappeared, got caught up in addiction leading to burning out in New Mexico before finally recovering. In this episode, you'll learn that recovery didn't last long and in fact, got worse since last catching up. Hear her story of how things spiraled down, the unique circumstances of meeting her current boyfriend, and how her five-year-old son ultimately got her back on the up-and-up.

Awesome stories, hell of a dude

Picked this dude up walking outta Asheville NC and got the opportunity to listen to some stories as we rode for an hour or so. Had a few laughs, and enjoyed hearing from someone that’s truly living my dream traveling the world. Glad he told me about this podcast so I can follow as he goes !

Hitchhiking in all the places

Great show. Definitely makes me want to hitchhike everywhere. I love his stories about the random people who give Kenny rides. He gets offered joints by some people and bibles by other people. He even hitchhikes in countries where he has to overcome a language barrier.

Great tips and stories

Listening in you'll find the thinking and courage it takes to live free. Kenny Flannery has interesting perspectives and stories that make you reconsider your own lot.
