The power of traveling is immeasurable; the power of storytelling invaluable. Together, they open many worlds beyond our imagination, worlds we never know have been existing. How can we find these worlds by simply going to places and telling stories that more likely are not ours? What can we get by doing all these things? Our guest for today can answer these questions. Earl Bridges, co-host of The Good Road, will talk about their pursuit of addressing the most pressing problems in the world with only their passion for traveling and storytelling.
