Beirut & Lebanon, beyond the media hype... check out my podcast (1 Viewer)


Sep 23, 2018
Hey everyone, I'm a new member of StP, but very enthusiastic about the concept. I also just started a podcast that focuses on travel and on highlighting underrepresented voices, communities, and places around the world. It's called Latitude Adjustment. I spent a good portion of the past 7 years packing solo across the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia, before settling here in Spain for the time being. I'll be doing an interview with @Matt Derrick for the StP podcast this coming Sunday (October 21st), and I'll be interviewing him for my show as well.

In the meantime, I'll share some of my interviews with my guests from around the world for those of you who are interested in learning more about places that often get misrepresented in traditional media.

Here's a show I just did with a writer from Beirut, Lebanon. Don't buy the hype about the Middle East. It's not one country. It's not a nonstop horror show. And Lebanon in particular is an awesome place to visit. Just bring your common sense and do your home work as you would traveling in the US or anywhere.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
