Welcome to episode 13!  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 The NYC Couple takes over the mic.  This power couple also known as Mark and Amanda, have done some serious travelling.  I asked them to give me a quick run down of where they went on their last trip, but when they tallied up the list my jaw dropped.  This couple has some serious traveling experience and a lot of stories to go along with it.
