Just got back from the natural wonders of Alaska. The visit was only 10 days -- not nearly enough to explore all that this state, which is over twice the size of Texas, has to offer. We had enough time to hang out in Anchorage for a few days and two side trips.

Here's some excerpts from my interview on the Michael Dresser Show. I had a great follow-up interview with him afterward, where he gave me some great feedback about how to connect with a radio audience in an interview. He seemed like a nice guy!

We also touched on solo female travel, a topic featured in my book. The full interview can be found below, or on my SoundCloud page. And, i learned about Servas.

Psychedelic tourism seems to be in favor these days. People are traveling to far away countries to meet shamans to practice with drugs like peyote, ibogaine, and ayahuasca.
