I love this show because you never know what comes up next. I have been a fan of the first podcast about real estate, but now that they are doing the interviews on Gallivanting it is awesome. Thanks.
I’ve followed the Viva Tropical Radio podcast for about six months to stay in the know about real estate happenings and expat life in Central/South America. I think this will be a great outlet for some of the cool stories I’ve heard there and thoughts on conscious living. Love the album art too - @VernonFoster - CPO at Pod Parrot
Surprisingly applicable to anyone's life
I went into this expecting to only gawk at the near-tragedy circumstances of an extreme athelete but came away with a profound respect for Greg, his sport, and his mental challenges to regain lost confidence. Greg is not some "surfer dude", he is well-spoken and I recommend anyone to listen to this interview. Josh's questions were insightful and the interview was excellent--it didn't dwell on the specific mechanics of how the wipeout happened and didn't sound scripted, more like two friends having a deep conversation.
