Stitcher   |   Overcast   |  Spotify

Jodi Ettenberg is a Canadian ex-lawyer who later discovered her passion in the world of food and travel. On her award-winning website, Legal Nomads, she’s helped people all over the world to explore the world around them, not with fear and suspicion, but with open-minded curiosity and compassion.

Jodi’s writing has been recognized by the world’s top online publications such as the New York Times, BBC, National Geographic, The Guardian, CNN, and Bloomberg.

A decade after she made the transition from lawyer to world traveler, because of a crazy unfortunate turn of events involving a spinal tap, Jodi is left wondering if she’ll ever be able to live her life of food and travel ever again. In this conversation with Branden Harvey, Jodi shares her wildly heartbreaking and powerful story for the first time on a podcast since the turn of events that changed her life forever.
