Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast

Life As A Nomad Attorney w/ Marc Weitz

June 23, 2020

Joining me today is someone who is known as “a nomad attorney”, who in the last two years has ventured through Pakistan and Iraq, driven from LA to Alaska, and maybe most impressively, took the Trans-Siberian railroad in winter, and who just published his third novel, He Who Fights with Monsters (wow, I’m tired just writing all of that out!), Marc Weitz.

Today's podcast is sponsored by Oregon State University ECampus.
