More Episodes

Welcome to the Travelman Podcast, my name is Ben and I host this cool little travel podcast. On today’s episode, I’ll be talking to Steve who’s originally one of the three co-hosts of Thinking Sideways podcast.

I still remember an episode I heard featuring a grisly murder in Italy while my wife Mandy and I were driving from Miami’s South Beach all the way down to Key West, in Florida, 3.5 hours later.

I was saddened when Thinking Sideways crew had decided to finish making podcasts because it would be too difficult to keep recording episodes as Steve was making his big move to Vietnam.

I’m interested in Steve’s journey to Vietnam and that’s why I have him on the podcast today.

Just letting you know that at the time of the recording Steve and I had a bad connection, maybe it was the torrential downpour that Vietnam was having as we spoke….

So, sit back and enjoy the conversation I had with Steve.
