Episode 021: Tatum Skipper - How to be a Boss Ass Bitch and Travel the World

March 14, 2017

Tatum Skipper @bonvoyage_bitches is a travel blogger known for her unique and sassy writing style that utilizes offensive language, brutal honesty, and a perspective opposing what most in her industry blog about. This is why she is crushing it.

 
Hailing from Atlanta, Ga. She has won a trip to the French Alps, sky dove in Dubai, lived lavishly through Europe and just recently started building out her RV. She's been queened as a "Professional Partier" and shows people that you can travel the world however you want. 
 
There is something uniquely refreshing about someone willing to forgo the facade of perfection while traveling to bring you the no bullshit version. Let's face it, no trip on the road goes as planned. So Tatum is building her BonVoyage Bitches brand through honesty and leaving bad reviews (just kidding - but she will blog about it). 

 
This episode becomes a montage on how to be different in the travel world. We discover how she uses blogging groups and optimization to grow her following and her biggest trick (Hint Hint: Pinterest). What a wild adventure this really was. 
 
 
You can find Tatum's blog at bonvoyagebitches.com where she writes about places that don't suck and has a segment we love called The Confessional; where you can read about and share crazy, embarrassing, disgusting and just down right dirty horror stories that have happened while traveling.
 
Travel junkie or just plain frugal? One of our most popular episodes was with Kevin Wong - The Invincible Budget - in which he provides tips and tricks on traveling the world for $25/day.

Episode 019: Darryll Fish - The Power of Awareness

March 1, 2017

Darryll Fish aka DFish (@darryllfish) is a 31-year-old professional poker player known not only for his skills at the tables but his shrewd social awareness and community building. He spends his time traveling the world playing both tournaments and cash games.

 

Some of his career highlights include a WSOP Circuit victory in Palm Beach Florida, 2nd place at WPT Montreal, and 3rdplace in the 2013 WSOP $5,000 bracelet event. He is sponsored by Seminole Hard Rock and has recently found himself doing commentary for live stream play-by-play.  

 

His experience playing a game that focuses on the emotions and nuances of his opponents has opened up awareness in other areas of his life (more on this in the show).  Darryll can elegantly connect and engage people from different walks of life inconsequential conversation.

 

This episode becomes a deeply meaningful conversation that explores the ego (such as Darryll’s poker ego) and different forms of social connection. We do a lot of critical analysis on the generational divide between millennials and their parents while discussing those different mindsets and searching through solutions to work out the differences. 

 

Highlights from this episode include Darryll’s recent poker trip to Australia, resolving deep-rooted pain from childhood, and some tricks for setting intentions. 

 

You can see one of Darryll’s most important poker hands at his 2nd place WPT Montreal finish here.

 

This is our second episode featuring a professional poker player and there were some interesting similarities and differences between the conversation with Adam Levy and Darryl.

Episode 018 : Joe Skipper - Crickets and Other Alternative Protein Sources

February 21, 2017
Sustainability. Sustainability. Sustainability. 
 
It's a topic that is on the tip of many tongues and debated
across an array of industries, especially on buses.
 
The real question, though, one that we often forget to ask. 
What can I personally do, engender a sustainable planet?
 
This week's guest Joseph Skipper - who also goes by the nickname
Cricket Guy - literally quit his job one day to farm Crickets.
His reasoning? A deep inner yearning to farm coupled with a 
desire to create a viable impact on our planet. He is now owner of Seginus Farms @seginusfarms, first urban cricket farm in Florida devoted exclusively to raising human-grade entomological products
 
Joe recognized that crickets are a sustainable and healthy
source of protein just now starting to be eaten in
The United States. Outside of the U.S. crickets are eaten by billions of people
as both a major source of protein and a delicacy. He wants
to capitalize on a potentially huge growing market while also creating
a positive environmental impact.
 
In this episode, we talk all things bugs. Heck, we even eat
a few on air. Joe talks insect eating regulations, their 
diet, and his experience at the Insect Eating Convention
in Detroit. Among other things - this conversation obviously
becomes a great one about nutritional hacking. 
 
You can find out more @seginusfarms and you can also purchase
the prized Moringa Cricket Power Mix (which we love and use) to make Cricket Brownies.
 
Here is a good article to learn about the power of cricket protein or visit Grubbly Farms the company from Forbes 30 under 30 positively 
impacting the chicken feed industry.
 
Since we are on a role here with alternative nutrition and medicine.
Our most recent conversation with Danny Perdeck, Owner of Green Roads
World explores how CBD oil provides health hacks.

Episode 016: Storm McGowan - Acid, Salt, Fat and the Chef Collab

February 14, 2017

Michael McGowan a.k.a. Storm. is a young entrepreneur and classically trained chef in the culinary capital of New York City.

Storm graduated top of his class at one of the top culinary schools in New York. He has worked at famed Michelin star restaurants, is a co-founder of @gophercase, and has his own baking company with his fiance Bake Shop 314. All by the ripe age of 27 years old.

This is a very special episode to us as we tried something a little bit different to share with you guys.

We joined up with Storm and his fiance to each create an elaborate dish together one evening, and then met in the studio the next day to talk about the meals, everything from the food prep to the taste, techniques, and cooking mindset.

Besides the meals, we also talk about the highly competitive and cutthroat world that is food in NYC. Storm answers all the questions about sourcing great produce and teaches us some tricks for the gourmet kitchen. There is no shortage of nutrition talk for those millennials working on their diet. 

Get your knives ready (but keep them tucked in while on the bus). You're about to take a culinary journey.

Episode 015: Bryan Shay - The Live High Campaign

January 23, 2017

This week we share our first conversation with Bryan Shay, @livehighbry. Bryan is one of the creators of Live High; a platform for storytellers to share their content in order to help awaken and inspire humanity. Live High is about doing what you love, living from your heart, following your passion, and living in the moment. This is a wonderful creed to live by that we echo with the On the Bus ideology.

 

Bryan’s modest and quiescent disposition are in part credited to his genuine interest in what those around him have to say. He is curious, caring, and passionate about people. And he takes the word sharing to another level. Bryan studied and majored in filmmaking at Ithaca College. His skills have led him to travel different parts of the world to learn from others.

 

Like many other millennials, he is still on the never ending journey to discovering and improving the self. He is constantly taking on new challenges to find a path of less resistance and have more faith in the moment. 

 

His most recent challenge was monumental (and downright inspiring) to many. He decided to bike ride across the country, 3600 miles from ocean to ocean, with his younger brother; as a way to catch up and bond as adults. The journey shares not only newfound brotherly affection, but a group of elementary school children rooting them on, and the heartfelt stories of many connections along the way. 

 

In this episode, among other things, we get a unique perspective on travel; biking across the country, conforming in society, happiness in relationships, and ayahuasca ceremonies. We also broach the subject of social media’s long-term neural effects and get a round table of opinions. A hefty bus ride!

Episode 014: Adam Levy - In the Mind of a Poker Pro

January 17, 2017

Adam, known to many as @Roothlus, is a professional poker player who exited a life on Poker’s biggest stage in an attempt to forge a new path. Though he’s taking risks in the entrepreneurial and marketing game these days, it’s his diverse skills from playing Poker and Magic: The Gathering that helped open the floodgates.  He’s quite the social experimenter, has some wild stories from his poker days, and is known to make a stir with his top 10 lists. Plus, he’s just much happier when he can share an opinion or two.

His most celebrated poker achievement undoubtedly had to come back in the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event, where he placed 12th overall. It wasn't just Adams audacious poker play that propelled him to fame but more of his casual celebrity run-ins, with the likes of Phil Hellmuth and Justin Beiber! 

We talk about the grass being greener outside Adam's comfort zones as well as the evolution of slang and language through ebonics. This conversation is great for any 20 something year old who thought the best way to optimize his or her's human experience is through fame and fortune.

Episode 013: Jonothan the Monk - Happiness in a World of Desires

January 3, 2017

The Consciousness Debate. To have clear cut discourse we must first answer the question, what is Consciousness?  But that’s where we often get stuck, leaving further questions such as; Do we have a soul? Is there free will? Does God Exist? Can the body exist without the mind?   

This is probably the hardest introduction to make for any guest we’ve had, simply because words do not do this conversation justice. Here’s my attempt

Our guest is none other than Hare Krishna Monk – Jonothan Foley. He is an incredibly well-spoken and cogent speaker with beliefs rooted in Hinduism. Without a doubt his relationship with consciousness and existence will knock your socks off.  He is a twetny-two year old that lives directly in the Alachua Hare Krishna Temple in Gainesville, Florida. His time is dedicated to meditation and prayer, book distribution, and recruitment of new members (more on this later).

This verbally powerful and action packed episode shares his past life (as a misguided drug dealer) and describes how he embarked on his spiritual awakening. We talk about the role of the material world versus the spiritual world and Jonothan explains the misuse of free will. What about Love? He shares profound insight into true love and its battle-hardened cousin, lust. We were truly opened up by his controversial perspective. Jonothan also defines the position of desires and the soul within the body in relation to consciousness.

There is so much in this episode that writing here cannot do it justice. We do talk about the role of robots in consciousness and how the monks view artificial intelligence (our favorite).  And there is a surprise interaction to close the episode out. Whether you believe in God or not. We have no doubt each of you will take away something profoundly unique in this conversation

You can connect with Jonothan on Facebook @ Jonothan Foley and by email srimadbhagavatam247@gmail.com. You can find out more about the Hare Krishna Temple in Gainesville Florida HERE and to donate to their cause.

Episode 012: Troy Wiggins - Reggae and Wise Words

December 27, 2016

Music is Emotional. And musical creation elicits emotional responses. But what is the inspiration behind a song? And what about its lyrics? Cue Troy Wiggins.

Troy is the Drummer from Reggae band - Roots of a Rebellion (R.O.A.R.), based out of Nashville, TN. A grassroots band with 6 members, Roots of a Rebellion just played at Bonnaroo Music Festival and released their second album, A Brother's Instinct. Their music can be found on every major platform and their reach extends from America to Europe and the Caribbean.

A thoughtful speaker and songwriter (despite being the drummer), Troy shares an insightful conversation with us about his band’s inception and we were blown away to learn how well they function together behind the scenes. Besides great topics such as augmented reality at music festivals and dread culture, Troy shares some personal moments with his band about a song he wrote for his father.

You can connect with Troy on Instagram @treece_wiggs and on Facebook at Troy Wiggins. You can find the band @rootsofarebellion on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube.
