This is an excerpt of our conversation with Graham Hughes where we both get kind of ranty and I wanted to give it its own space now at a time when our thoughts about the world have been challenged. We recorded this conversation pre Trump and pre Brexit- so neither of us had the knowledge to know the outcomes of those elections but as you can here we do have foresight to feel that something was happening. In this mini episode we discuss the elements that have made the world seem more dangerous than ever and the hysteria people have against traveling due to these skewed perceptions. I hope mine and Graham's’ stories of our global interactions show some proof of how the world isn’t as bad as it seems. You can read all about Graham stories with strangers from all over the globe travels in his new hilarious book “Man of the World” which we will link on the website.
