#48 | The Second Most Interesting Man In The World - Robin Esrock (Bucket List)

My guest today is Robin Esrock, a global adventurer, travel writer, and author of the Great Global Bucket List.

After a chance encounter on a Canadian TV talk show, Robin and I have remained friends for over a decade. We’ve shared countless experiences together, from working on his acclaimed international reality series Word Travels, to exploring the playa at Burning Man, and even attending the prestigious Explorers Club in New York City (where he was the Master of Ceremonies).

Robin is a man who has done it all. In our conversation today, he shares about his life growing up in apartheid South Africa and his immigration to Canada. He details the fortuitous motorcycle accident that became his gateway to travel writing, and what he discovered about various rites of passage for men around the world.

And finally, he shares key insights on how to travel with children (he has two), and what might remain on his list when it’s time to kick the bucket.
