Ep 57 | Solo Episode: Traveling My Roots

Oct 22, 2021 | Podcast Episodes

This episode is from the final season of my original travel podcast, The Globetrotter Lounge, where I interview women who have found creative ways to travel more. I’m sharing it here as it is relevant to Traveling My Roots, and a good way to learn more about the project.


Although I planned to end the Globetrotter Lounge podcast at the end of 2020, some personal events over the last year inspired me to produce one more, final season. I share what led me to that decision, and give a preview of upcoming guests and topics. I also announce my new podcast project, Traveling My Roots, which will document my travels to where my adoptive and biological ancestors are from. Along the way I will explore Black history, the immigrant experience, the complexities of adoption and being biracial – and ultimately my own identity.

What You’ll Learn

  • My journey navigating grief and loss
  • Some of the story of finding my biological father
  • About my new DNA travel podcast project
  • Who some of my guests are for this new season
  • Topics I’ll be exploring in upcoming episodes
