Wander By Proxy

Wander By Proxy

Wander By Proxy brings stories from women about the priceless experiences collected while traveling. For those privileged enough to have a travel story—a moment where, while you left the safety of home, you suddenly felt more connected to yourself, the people around you, or the world—it has probably become part of your internal framework. Wander By Proxy host Leah Falyn interviews travelers about these life-changing turning points. Episodes are released every other Wednesday morning.
