Stories for Yeah, Let’s Go There are gathered by traveling to unusual places and interviewing the extraordinary people met along the way. As I gear up to edit the second season of the show, I’d like to give those people who didn’t happen to be in the right place at the right time a chance to share their stories as well.

From now until April 16 only, Yeah, Let’s Go There the podcast will be accepting stories from anyone who would like to submit. 

YLGT stories are travel themed stories with an element of redemption and typically include a significant personal change. We are not looking for shock value but rather unique tales of personal triumph of all kinds.

If you have a story to share you can contact us on our contact page (here), or via email:

"I don't need to get married. I'm happy to get married but I don't need it to be a good husband. I don't need it for myself. You and I have been together for two years. I'm not going to run off...

You don't understand where I'm coming from. If you understood me, you'd agree with me...

I'm happy with my life. I don't need it to make me faithful. That's all I'm saying. Don't read more into it than that."

--50+ year old Englishman to his late thirties Vietnamese girlfriend

So many!

Really. I promise.

All the stories! They’re practically done!


They’re on their way.

Just hold on a little longer.

I can’t even describe how much writing I’m about to do. You’re all gonna be so happy.


I’ve also got a lot of practical matters to take care of.

But after that, SOOOO much writing is gonna happen!

And I’ll be writing A LOT in between errands.

For sure, I am.

A bit at least.

All my free time, really, it’s gonna be spent on writing stories.

You’ll see.

Pretty soon now.

I’m just gonna post how productive I’m being to Facebook first.

I would rather delay this week's episode by a day than sacrifice its quality. I'm no longer young enough to pull off all-nighters. It's a thrilling, tragic story and it deserves to be done right. Look for the new episode "The Last Phone Call" Monday at midnight.
