Latitude Adjustment

A journey around the world through conversation. News reporting is heavily influenced by business & political models that capitalize on narratives of crisis, war, and disaster. As a result we get a distorted view of what life actually looks like for large segments of the planet, as we’re conditioned to accept stereotypes, political narratives, and judgements that have little basis in reality. Through open conversation and personal stories, Latitude Adjustment will highlight places & communities that are either deprived of context or altogether absent from the media landscape and from our mental maps of the world. As your host, I‘ll also be sharing tips from my years of solo travel. I’ll try to balance a healthy skepticism of political correctness with contempt for oppressive power structures, but work with me, I’m learning and my aim is to inspire others to learn along with me as I confront my own ignorance. Each episode will end with an invitation for you to participate in the conversation.
