06. Travel Podcasts with Lauren Lark

A photographer who's appeared in magazines such as Portland Monthly and Travel Portland, and is showing in the Steven Goldman Gallery all this month, Lauren Lark exemplifies her unique aesthetic in every aspect of her life.

She also happens to be my girlfriend, which is pretty neat. 

This week, Lauren and I are headed to Colorado! Not to get high, just visiting family-- but it gave us an excuse to talk about travel and podcasts we listen to on the road (or in the air, in this case). Lauren and I adore road trips, and bring a hefty list of podcasts along on each one we take. They act as conversation starters, pleasant silence-fillers, and educational resources as we watch miles and miles of pavement woosh past. Today, I ask Lauren about the podcast she listens to in her busy schedule, how to listen to podcasts on the road, and she gives some recommendations for shows you and your significant other can get into together.

Enjoy!

Show Notes:
You can follow Lauren's photography work on her website, or on Twitter!
We're drinking Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale. It's fuckin' delicious.
Immediately after recording, Lauren shouted, "Shit! I forgot to recommend Sawbones!" She really likes Sawbones, and says that if you're going on a road trip, download the entire catalog and enjoy it.
