Welcome to episode 9!  This podcast is all about nerding out with fellow creators on camera gear, travelling, and all that stuff we creatives are obsessed with. In this episode Tal from The Travelling Clatt takes over the mic.  Tal caught the travel bug very early on with a trip to Africa in high school.  Not long after, Tal reached early stardom from a video about his journey on a container ship.  Since then he hasn't looked back as he lives the life of a travelling creative.  In this episode we talk a fair bit about the life of a creative, but led the conversation more towards life on the road.  This took a very interesting direction as Tal is well known for getting real with his listeners.  In this interview he did not disappoint.
