FROM THIS EPISODE

This is part 2 of 2. 
Listen to part 1: is.gd/hbm017

In the summer of 2011, a scared 22 year old decided to hitchhike across America. He was trying to meet real Americans. However, there was a caveat—he was also terrified of strangers.

That young traveler was me. Fear was becoming far too prevalent in my life, so I headed out onto the road. This episode looks at the lessons I learned in the first half of that trip, joining a carnival, sleeping in a cemetery, camping with a train rider named puke.

The Here Be monsters podcast is a growing community of producers and artists and musicians and thinkers, oriented to follow fears, and the unknown and anything that's confusing or interesting.

Right now, we’re doing a fundraiser for the show, selling a really unique and funny magazine with photos from this hitchhiking trip. Support the show: is.gd/HBMmag

Here Be Monsters is now available on Stitcher! Search for the show, or go to is.gd/hbmstitcher/
