Story Of My Life

New Interview Now Live On The Self-Propelled Podcast

I very much enjoyed chatting with Dave Cornthwaite a couple of weeks ago while recording a new episode for his Self Propelled Podcast.

We travelled a meandering path of conversation on the theme of living life on one’s own terms, from my early bicycle-mounted adventures, to finding creative expression through books and films, to sharing lessons in life and travel with others looking to expand their horizons, and finally the Transcaucasian Trail project that has consumed my existence for the last half-decade.

You can listen via the embedded player below, or visit the podcast’s page on for links to the episode on all the popular podcast platforms.
