    My friend Rosi from Australia contacts my brother and me to invite us to join her on an 11,000 mile road trip this summer across Europe and Asia, and we weigh the risks, challenges, and rewards of driving to Mongolia in a tiny car that’s totally not built for such a journey.

    Another full episode is coming out next week, but in the meantime, here’s an excerpt of a recent interview I did about my trip on my friend and colleague Paul Brubaker’s show, The Backgrounder podcast. Our conversation was recorded live on stage in Montclair, NJ, and is being used here with the permission of The Backgrounder and Direct Audio Media. To listen to the full interview, go to BackgrounderPod.com and search for episode 68.
