Traveling While Black w/ Nanjala Nyabola

How has fear held you back in life and in travel? What is your relationship with fear after travel?

Today’s guest is writer, humanitarian advocate, and political analyst, Nanjala Nyabola. She is also the author of a must-read book, Travelling While Black: Essays Inspired By A Life On The Move which we do get into a bit in this chat and that you can pre-order right now!

In this episode, we dive into giving back as a traveler, the impact that travel can have on your relationship with fear, privilege, and why you can and should do many varied things in life (no niching required).
