Love the adventures

This podcast is always fascinating. My only suggestion is that there are some really high pitched sound effects that are hard to listen to. I love every guest and think Joe does a great job getting the most out of each guest.

Inspiring, informative, and seemingly impartial

I enjoy the way this podcast can go from the heat of Iran and political decisions affecting female travelers, directly to Big Foot in New Jersey and bourbon reviews and recommendations. I quite literally stumbled upon joe while out exploring and I’ve never been happier at a personal recommendations. Stay lost, stay woke, and stay open to all life throws your way 🤙🏽.
