HBM018: How I Learned to Love Rejection (part 2)

This is part 2 of 2.  Listen to Part 1 first!

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.

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!

HBM011: Puke Quits Trainriding

 I met Puke when I was walking down the street on a trans-America hitchhiking trip in 2011. We camped together in the park, and before we fell asleep, I pulled out my recorder and had him tell some stories about his impending transition from trainriding to college.

WARNING: This episode is absolutely rife with foul language.
