No Blackout Dates

By Eben Diskin and Tim Wenger

No Blackout Dates introduces you to the beautiful, bizarre, and batsh*t crazy world of travel writing. Join Tim and Eben for completely unfiltered stories from the road that any responsible editor would (and has) cut from print. They talk about what it’s like to travel for a living, introduce you to the wild characters they’ve met along the way, and expose a side of the travel lifestyle that Rick Steves doesn’t want you to know about. Don’t expect advice on becoming a digital nomad or landing a dream job, but DO look forward to pro-level travel insight and wild perspectives from personalities across the industry.
