    What comes to mind when you think of Joshua Tree? Is it psychedelic drugs, or weird Dr. Seuss looking trees and the wide-open desert landscape? Maybe it's a place for bands like The Eagles and U2 or even influencers with big hats who just wanna escape from LA for the weekend and take selfies. Or maybe, it's a place where people come to heal or to make something, or both.

    At age 23, Andrew Forsthoefel was feeling a little lost and so he decided to walk out of his mother's house and just keep walking until he felt called to stop or until he hit the pacific ocean. 4,000 miles of walking, 5 pairs of shoes, and nearly a year later, he had walked clear across the country. Andrew joins me to discuss what he learned about himself and people along the way.
