100 Days of RY Aurora – Looking Forward



I’m spending a year traveling the world with Remote Year Aurora: a group of fifty-something strangers that came together last New Year’s Eve to form a nomad community.

Last month we passed our one hundredth day on this experience, and in the spirit of “doing something different” with this podcast, over a span of two weeks I spoke with twenty-seven people from the cohort in small group settings, asking questions about the hundred day milestone, what we wanted to tell our past selves, what’s happened already, what we hope will happen in the future, etc.

This is the fifth (and final installment) in a collection of episodes crafted from the content of those conversations. If you have any questions, comments, or other feedback, please drop me a line at justdatawithasoul@gmail.com – thanks for listening 🙂

3 Airports & Connecting Flights & People – 09



Transition Day last Saturday – spent the day in the air and in airports (COR > SCL > LIM), so that’s caused another 12 hour delay in the release time.

In today’s episode: airports, observations, group dynamics, thinking about connections moving forward, and another Brene Brown quote. Here she is at Super Soul Sessions talking about the Anatomy of Trust (not where the quote comes from, but thematically relevant)


2 Worlds 1 Family & 0 Tarzan – 08



  • Shamelessly pulling from Phil Collins’ Tarzan soundtrack for this week’s episode title
  • Glowtrotter guest Gunther (check out his blog here) as well as snippets from my sister (again)
  • Screenplay character interview and recounting my last day in the sierras in my last week in Argentina
  • Quotes from The Mysterious Benedict Society and Thomas Buechner
  • Post-credits outtakes from the interview

Day 49… 50… 51… where is this week’s episode?



(audio is pretty much same as the show notes, but I recorded it for anyone who just gets podcast updates and doesn’t check this site 🙂 )

Hola from Cordoba!

So as you may have noticed, there has not been a new jdwas episode this week. Last week my sister was in town, so much of my time was spent with her and not working on this week’s podcast. I have an episode (mostly) written, but family and work (rightly) took priority this week. Thank you for your patience as I figure out how best to communicate with you about the status of episodes and expectations for the release schedule.

I wanted to get the episode originally scheduled for the 19th of February out Monday, then yesterday, then today, but I think–for my own sanity–I will release this episode on the 26th of February (this coming Monday) instead. This will allow me to “get back on the horse”, i.e. my regular Monday morning release schedule and maintain consistency going forward.

If you have any questions, comments, or stories to share on the podcast, please drop me a note (written or record some audio) at justdatawithasoul@gmail.com – hope to hear from you all!

Talk to you next week <3
