About Us

Do you like to travel? Do you like to listen to travel tales from well off the beaten path? "e-travels with e.trules" is a new, personal, idiosyncratic, and literary podcast created by Eric Trules. A longtime Huffington Post blogger and theater Professor at USC in Los Angeles, Trules has traveled our beautiful and problematic planet for decades, staying in Bedouin huts on the Red Sea, riding the rails to "Nose of the Devil" in Southern Ecuador, and meeting his future Indonesian wife on the magical island of Bali. If you like to travel vicariously, or be provocatively reminded of your own travel adventures, and misadventures, listen to these entertaining podcasts with original music by Amanda Yamate and sound design by Alysha Bermudez. New episodes will be released once a month on iTunes, with "Behind the Scenes" episodes two weeks later. Please subscribe to the podcast, contact Trules to join him "on the air", and... Happy Trails.

ET043 - Bonus: Interview with Outlier, Matt Dartnell

Bonus: Trules Guests on Podcast Junkies, Episode 42

Today’s Bonus interview on “Podcast Junkies” is called: “Rebelling Against Conformity and Finding Freedom Through the Arts”, and in it, host Harry Duran and I cover my journey from pre-med college student to professional clown and recent podcaster. Along the way, Harry calls my work the “predecessor of flash mobs”. I’m not exactly sure that’s true, but it sounds good and it is Harry’s show. https://erictrules.com/episode42

Behind the Scenes with Travel Writer, Linda Ballou - Episode 41

Linda Ballou is an accomplished travel and adventure writer - about whom world-wide explorer, Jim Dorsey, says: "Ballou takes us out of their armchair into the world as few travel writers can. Her eye for detail, combined with intimate knowledge of her surroundings, sets Ms. Ballou heads above most of the travel writing pack. In this age when everyone with a back pack proclaims him or herself a travel writer, it takes books like Linda's- to re-define the genre. This is just plain, great, travel writing.”

The Ghosts of Edinburgh, Scotland - Episode 40

Today we’ll be time traveling again - back to 1988, when I ventured to the Edinburgh Fringe, the largest arts festival in the Western world. I was invited to perform my one man show as part of a theater troupe called “New Voices from America”. I was lucky because I had been dreaming of going to the Edinburgh Festival for almost 2 decades. It had magic and wonder and international artspainted all over its Scottish kilts. And then behold... I spoke to the ghosts of William Wallace and Sir Robert, the

Behind the Scenes with Travel Wisdom Podcast Host, Ladan Jiracek - Episode 39

Ladan Jiracek, host of the Travel Wisdom Podcast, is my Behind the Scenes guest today because… I just love the question that his podcast poses: “Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Can it also provide a learning experiences for later in life?” Ladan believes it can be, and that’s why he’s traveled to over 100 countries... hoping to plant the seeds of wisdom from faraway lands in the hearts and minds of his listeners. http://erictrules.com/episode39

The Seedy & Glamorous Hotel Woodward, NYC Back in the Day - Episode 38

New York City — “back in the day” — when Studio 54 was all the rage and the TKTS tickets booth on 47th Street and Broadway was still bright-eyed and bushy tailed. When my rent at the infamous and sometimes dangerous, Hotel Woodward was $55 a week, and I had to figure out a way to pay it. As you’ll hear, I was ingenious, and perhaps a little criminal, in the way I did so, but that’s what’s interesting about time travel, it allows you to see the innocence and error of youth…. hopefully with a

Behind the Scenes with Travel Hacker, Jen Ruiz - Episode 37

Jen Ruiz is the author of “The Affordable Flight Guide”, and she documents her travel adventures on her website, jenonajetplane.com. She believes that too many people put off seeing the world until they retire, save up a small fortune, or find the perfect travel partner. She thinks it’s a mistake because those circumstances might never happen, and meanwhile, the world is out there waiting. So if you want to travel for less, and experience more, then speak to Jen.

Susan, Tim, and Me - Bali Goes Hollywood - Episode 36

Welcome to a cremation ceremony in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. Thousands of locals and tourists are watching an elaborate ceremony… where the bones of men, women, and children, who have never received a proper burial, have been dug up, placed in giant coffin-boxes topped with carved wooden bulls, run through the streets, surprisingly like the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, and then set afire in a giant Hindu-Bali ceremony of flames and celebration. Amidst the humbling crowd are Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, and… m

Behind the Scenes with Reggae Aficionado, Roger Steffens - Episode 35

Roger Steffens is a reggae expert and collector extraordinaire. Also a poet, photographer, raconteur, and personal friend of Bob Marley. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be presenting some previously-unreleased Bob Marley music from the singer’s personal “Bedroom Tapes” that Roger has graciously allowed me to mix into our interview, “on loan” from “The Archives”….along with several original “dub tracks: by The Wailers themselves. Enjoy…. https://erictrules.com/episode35

If you remember, I last left you at the end of "Moon Over Chefchaouen, Part 1" getting off a hot, crowded bus which took me from Tetouen, Morocco to… Chechaouen, Morocco. It turns out that not all “ouens” are the same. Shownotes: https://erictrules.com/episode34
