Episode Info: In the summer of 2011, a scared 22 year old decided to hitchhike across America. He was trying to meet real Americans. However, there was a caveat—he was also terrified of strangers. That young traveler was me. Fear was becoming far too prevalent in my life, so I headed out onto the road. This episode looks at the lessons I learned in the first half of that trip, meeting a pastor, finding a strange cave, admiring the bizarre beauty of Yellowstone, and witnessing a fatal shooting. Part 2 coming soon! The Here Be monsters podcast is a growing community of producers and artists and musicians and thinkers, oriented to follow fears, and the unknown and anything that's confusing or interesting. Right now, we’re doing a fundraiser for the show, selling a really unique and funny magazine with photos from this hitchhiking trip. SUPPORT THE SHOW: Music: Flower Petal Downpour (New EP out!)
