Imagine what it would be like to travel the world, meet the most amazing people on the road, learn from them and gain an incredible perspective about how they live.
Now imagine being able to do that from your home.
I created The Bus Driver Experience as a way to gain a new perspective from the unique lives of other people - Olympic athletes, monks, porn stars - to not just learn, but EXPERIENCE what it’s like to be in their shoes for a day.
And do it in a way unlike how every other travel/interview show does it. Most other shows merely talk with these individuals.
But talking with these people isn’t enough for me.
I want to live their unique story. To understand not only what they go through in their day to day, but also why they’re doing it.

    Ian Markow - Strength Through Mobility - Episode 42

    Ian Markow is a Miami based Kinstretch instructor. He is the founder of Markow Training Systems where he integrates mobility principles with strength training. The number one priority of Markow Training Systems is to educate people all over the world giving them independence. This means no longer seeing the chiropractor two times a week, no more pain killers, and ultimately knowing that you can DO ANYTHING with proper progressions.
    As a former athlete and now a regular Joe I know what it's like to fight to stay in shape as well as deal with decades of wear and tear.

    Juan Bates aka Big Guard - Episode 41

    Juan Bates aka Big Guard - Episode 41

    Today I am joined by THE Voice of all the Big Guards out there, that's right I have Big Guard himself, Juan Bates. His Instagram and YouTube Channel has become the premier platform for small guards.
    Big Guard is more than another hooper; he is one more excellent example of a player that won’t shut up and dribble - a rebel with a cause. His cause is to use his Big Guard platform to inspire, motivate, and elevate athletes that face hurdles similar to those he himself experienced.
    Almost all athletes when they step away from the game have a hard time finding their footing. If you are a regular to the show you know I speak on this at length. Big Guard is a great example of someone continuing to use basketball as their vehicle to inspire change to other hoopers coming up.
    Juan and I talk about the art of the hesitation as well as the NBA reopening next week! Although we both seek to inspire and empower the next generation we have different approaches and ideas on how to do this. Juan and I take the Bus off the rails when diving deep into the pandemic and best ways to combat the virus.
    Please check out Juans work below.

    Lizbeth Cruz De La Santana - Bus Driver Experience - Episode 40

    Lizbeth De La Cruz is a first generation latinx student from Los Angeles, California. Inspired by her teachers in elementary school, from an early age, she discovered her passion for learning and teaching. These experiences and others brought Lizbeth's interests and the community together enabled a strong foundation which has shaped her activism and public service through engaged digital scholarship.
    Currently, Lizbeth is a fifth year Ph.D. Candidate at the University of California Davis working towards a Ph.D. in Spanish with an emphasis on Human Rights. She received her B.A. and M.A. from Fresno State.
    Her academic scholarship emphasizes a Publicly Engaged Digital Humanities approach through fieldwork in the U.S.-Mexico Border. Her role as a facilitator for the DACAmented: DREAMS without Borders and Humanizing Deportation, Digital Storytelling projects provide the platform for undocumented immigrants and deportees to participate as knowledge creators. ​Lizbeth is currently co-developing Migri Map, a humanitarian aid resource for migrants in Tijuana.
    I met Lizbeth last year while I was on assignment for AJ+. I was covering the Playas de Tijuana Mural Project in Tijuana.
    Watch that video here
    While covering her story I was moved not only by her work but the many individuals I spoke with. Many of them have been negatively effected by the immigration policy between the United States and Mexico. Lizbeth and I jump right into supreme court rulings that recently took place, ICE and childhood detainees on our southern border.

RIDING THE BUS FOR YEARS

I've followed Reese and his podcast for years. Became a fan immediately. He shoots it strait, asks the right questions, and always has interesting content. Give it a shot, I highly recommend.

The man the myth the Brandon Reese!

This is definitely a podcast you will not want to miss! The range of guests, the different topics he talks about you will never have to worry about being entertained! He is very unique and very introspective which forces you to take a look at ones self and really ask am I doing everything in my power to be a little better everyday! I was lucky enough to interview Brandon and I can’t tell you how many things I took away from it but the main thing was gratitude! Show my boy some love and give it a listen! You def don’t want to wait to hop on this Hoop Bus! 5 star family from basketball to the podcast world
