The latest episode of the podcast is our first ever 2 part episode with Travis Hellstrom — former Peace Corps Volunteer, entrepreneur, author, and optimist. You can visit his website, travishellstrom.com to see the books he’s written and his new Optimist Program.

In part one, Travis and I talked about his service in Mongolia, the vast differences between Mongolia and the U.S., working with the first ever B Corporation in Asia, and starting the first TEDx event in Mongolia. We also chatted about Global Happiness Indices, the pressure the west puts on developing countries, and, lastly, how he met his wife in Mongolia.
