Nowhere To Go But Up


Apr 14, 2020

In this episode I reconnect with Eric Maddox who is currently covering the refugee crisis at the Moria Camp on the Island of Lesbos in Greece. Eric shares with me what he has been up to since our last conversation in episode 13. Below is a link to a written report on this subject.

Eric is the host of "The Latitude Adjustment" Podcast. This has become one of my favorite Podcasts'. This Podcast has allowed me to travel to places I would probably never have gone , through the stories he brings of the people living in these areas.

This Podcast has delivered all of the elements required to be able to leave an episode entertained, as well as having questions of my own about the places his guests are living in and the conditions they have endured in a search for a better life. 

Hearing these stories has caused me to reexamine my own life and lack of curiosity, and complacency when it comes to the basic human rights that most of us take for granted as the beneficiaries of the United States Empire. It is heart breaking to think that some of the basic things that I am guaranteed as a citizen of the U.S., in many foreign countries and places speaking up for those rights will get you beaten, and may get you killed.

This show has made me smile, made me question my own humanity, brought me to tears several times. It has shown me that I have holes, and blind spots to my own approach to life that I need to adjust. At the end of the day we are all just trying to navigate our way to a better place for our families and ourselves. 

Thank you Eric for educating me, and enlightening me. I hope one day that my show will do for others what your show has done for me.
