Modern Folk is about creating the world in which we want to live by addressing the problems of the day with solutions that involve collaboration, local economy, and robust food systems. It is about the health of individuals, families and community. It is about respecting the Earth and deepening our connection to our elders, ancestors and spirituality. Modern Folk is about dreaming for the future generations, as past generations have dreamt for us. Visit www.modernfolk.net

Great start to a new podcast
Really enjoyed the first few guests. Great podcast, really looking forward to new episodes coming down the pipe. Listening to the show has made me think a bit more about how I live my life, and how to get more involved with my community through my art.
A podcast with hopeful perspective
Being surrounded by so much creativity in Bend, I forget that their are many places in the world where people are not as focused on sustainable, local, passionate goals. Travis has this way of coming to these topics with wonder and discovery of how we are and can truly be evolving as humans back to a way of life that is more connected to spirit and the earth in this modern time. I particularly love his humbleness and curiosity, and I enjoy hearing the more intimate and vulnerable journeys of the interviewees.
Love Modern Folk
I have thoroughly enjoyed each episode of Modern Folk and feel a strong connection to Travis's narrative style and the guests that he features. I recommend Modern Folk to anyone interested in a healthy, sustainable, and conscientious lifestyle. Always looking forward to the next episode!
