    TTB 174: Traveling as the Ultra Marathon Man
    Dean Karnazes was named by TIME magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World,” and has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Among his many accomplishments, he has run 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days. He’s run across Death Valley in the middle of summer, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole. Today we discussed his life of ultra marathons, including The Road to Sparta where he retraced the steps of the story of the 153-mile run from Athens to Sparta that inspired the marathon and saved democracy!
    The Travelers Blueprint is an indie travel podcast where each week we like to bring you insight from travel authors, adventurers, conservationists, digital nomads, tour guides, and through our own personal experiences.

    TTB 173: The Cowboy Culture
    Matt Jacob is a photographer who’s main artistic discipline focuses on capturing the evocative, dynamic, and complex lives of humans within different cultures and subcultures around the world. Today we discussed “The Cowboy”, a series where Matt spent time on the Button Family Ranch in Kanab, Utah, USA. In Matt’s own words;
    “I was fortunate to be allowed to spend time with the Button family on the Button Cattle Co. ranch and farm and get to know the history of their generational way of life and what the future might look like in their business, given the externalities that are placing more and more significant stress on the industry, e.g. climate change, geographical sanctions, meat trade, politics and global import/export economics.”

    TTB 169: Life Saving Conversations
    Adam Schluter is a photographer who has dedicated his life to trying to use his art to try and bring the world closer together. 5 years ago, he spent all of his money to buy a plane ticket to Europe with the idea of walking up to strangers in as many countries as he could to say hello, ask for their photograph and then put the camera away to have a genuine conversation with them. The project has now been published three times by National Geographic, was a TED talk, a book and now, they're filming the show for it.

Elliot and Bob are great ,

I love this show!

My name is Andrew Tyree and I own a travel company called Coast to Costa for the last 10 years of my life. Travel is super important to me and I totally love it. Elliot and Bob both have a very open-minded, curious and intelligent way of looking at travel, other cultures and the world and encourage their listeners to do that, as well. I love how they promote conscious travel and highly recommend everyone gives it a listen and travels like they do!

Matt awseome kid ,
