A journey around the world through conversation.
News reporting is heavily influenced by business & political models that capitalize on narratives of crisis, war, and disaster. As a result we get a distorted view of what life actually looks like for large segments of the planet, as we’re conditioned to accept stereotypes, political narratives, and judgements that have little basis in reality.
Through open conversation and personal stories, Latitude Adjustment will highlight places & communities that are either deprived of context or altogether absent from the media landscape and from our mental maps of the world.
As your host, I‘ll also be sharing tips from my years of solo travel. I’ll try to balance a healthy skepticism of political correctness with contempt for oppressive power structures, but work with me, I’m learning and my aim is to inspire others to learn along with me as I confront my own ignorance. Each episode will end with an invitation for you to participate in the conversation.

Very realistic

Things from real life that the media is not interested in sharing because real life stories don’t generate as much money if it’s not part of a political agenda.

This podcast brings valuable and unique perspectives cultivated by years of studying and traveling abroad, meeting real heroes, victims, politicians, etc.. and getting them to share real stories from the US, Syria, Greece, Gaza, India, Yemen and now Sudan. For someone from the Middle East, this is as close to reality as it can get when anyone wants to tell our story.

Excellent Podcast.

I can't recomend this podcasy highly enough. You are going to hear viewpoints and opinions that make you challenge what you thought you knew. If you want to learn and think, this is the podcast for you.

Informative and engaging!

I love how this podcast takes a deep dive into the subject matter of each episode, taking time to really settle in to each interview and give listeners a full picture of the guest’s experiences. Really well done!
