With over 500 episodes to choose from, here are a few curated lists.
Speaking of the greatest hits, can anyone tell me who the cool and folksy African guy is that sings a sweet song about a cowboy? Chris mentioned him and played the song on one of the episodes.
The TOMA episodes are so enjoyable! You’re a great story teller. They were my favorite episodes when I started listening to your podcast more than 2 years ago! You’ve had very interesting and fun experiences/adventures/travels… and get to hear how that shape your path is even more interesting! I’m so thankful to my partner for have introduced me to your work. Your points of view have greatly influenced the way I see the world now.
Maybe you should consider adding the TOMA episodes as a list...
And I guess it’s needless to say that more TOMA episodes would be phenomenal!
Incredible list you should be super proud of.
Still get flashes as to where I was walking/traveling/commuting/working when listening to some of these.
Was listening to the Greg Lansky episode and at the end you say “wow and you are only 35! What will you be like at 45?” So he suggests interviewing people again after some years, to see What’s up for them. You guys even mention your friend’s 8 year old kid that you had just interviewed, wondering what it’d be like to interview him again as a man (which you did). Wouldn’t it be nice to get back to some other people ? I would love to know if any of them was able to maintain their lightheartedness and love for life. It sounds like back then people were almost naively happy and had faith in the future ... it makes me so nostalgic! Who knows of any of them was able to hold on to that... or if aging + the shitty times we live in are guaranteed to have made everyone grumpier and more disillusioned?
I’m a newbie to TS, Chris (discovered you through JRE). This list is super helpful, though any episode i stumble upon is fantastic. So many back episodes to explore! Keep up the great work!
Unbelievable list brother and I have liked all of them from day uno.
Fabian Dittrich for travel! Crazy stories and deep insights from traveling Africa and beyond. One of my favorites.
