A breath of fresh air. This podcast is phenomenal & the interviews are outrageously informative, inspirational & recorded all over the world. Wow, just wow. If you haven't already I recommend you subscribe to "The Trail Less Traveled".
This podcast gives you so many perspectives into the lives of others all around the world. It's very eye opening, and it lets you into other people's lives. I love it.
What I like most about this podcast is there is nothing else like it! It's truly groundbreaking.. resetting the standard for modern journalism in this click-bait fueled and Kardashian ruled era of social media and fake news. You won't find a more authentic and satisfyingly real podcast.
