The gold standard for Overlanding
Although there are many Overlanding podcasts — many of which I like — this one sets the standard for what genuine Overlanding is. With a focus on international exploration/travel/adventure, the very experienced hosts and their guests are well worth listening to. One of my favorite podcasts overall.
Decent guests ANNOYING/EGO host
The magazine editor/host needs to talk less about himself and let the guest do their thing.
Contradictions and judgements
There is a strange mix of holier than thou attitude and extremely practical advice. Example, 10min talking about minimalism and how thats the way it should be done, then namedropping traveling with an Earthroamer.
The whole magazine is built around selling ads for gear, bumpers etc, it’s a little ironic to then put down people who buy the stuff the hosts make money on.
Irony aside, I listen! Have an opinion for sure, but stick to it, that gives you more credibility.
