A podcast about how to make the most of your life trip, hosted by Dana Sutton, The Life Trip Coach. Dancing in the space where humor and seriousness overlap, episodes use various trip or journey metaphors to talk about the challenges and opportunities we face at different points in life ("becalmed" = no energy to go forward, "detours" = things that happen that we can't plan for).  Some are solo episodes with Dana, while others involve interviews with a coach, counselor, or other "travel agent." Funny, relevant, thought-provoking, and helpfully motivating!
