Nomads and Privilege with Amanda Machado

Nomads and Privilege with Amanda Machado

October 6, 2021 |

Ever thought about your relationship with the places you visit and whether you’re doing more harm than good? Are you aware of the incredible privilege inherent in the lifestyles we live (or aspire to live) as nomads?

I invite you to listen in as I discuss this topic with guest Amanda Machado. This particular episode has more questions than answers, but they’re questions I think more of us need to be asking. They can help inform how we travel and where, the ways in which we can try to avoid inflicting harm on others and their communities, and lots more.

Amanda gives actionable advice on how to break the barriers of privilege and how to self-regulate your action to make sure it’s coming from a genuine place and is non-performative. She also uncovers how you can practice justice-oriented travel in your nomad journey.
