I like doing themed playlists. Travel, sadness, driving, change are all fantastic topics, and mixing music in one of those veins gives me an excuse to go back and listen to music – new and old – in a different way.

giuliana-4To kick off a show with Giuliana Rossi, the natural choice is Iron & Wine’s Walking Far From Home. It’s what she ended up doing, and it fits her perfectly. You’re going to see a lot of things, some of which you will appreciate right away, some that may not strike you until later. The important thing is to get out there and out of your comfort zone.

Giuliana logs her travel online, and she was kind enough to share some of what she’s learned about it. Along with walking far from home, we talked about millennials (she is one), college experiences, and a clothes exchange program for the truly adventurous explorer.

38:30 – “Not only are you going to choose this meal, you’re going to actually cook the meal, and then prepare the meal. Then serve it to other people. This analogy has gone off the rails.
