On this wayfaring episode of the Popzara Podcast our own intrepid pilgrim Nia Bothwell joins travel author and modern day explorer Kate Harris to talk about her upcoming literary debut that blends these two passions in one alluring package: Lands of Lost Borders: A Journey on the Silk Road. It’s a memoir detailing the highs and lows traversing one of the most iconic trade routes in history, an adventure that proved impossible to resist for the award-winning, grid-eschewing Harris.

In this revealing conversation Nia and Kate talk about the difficulties inherent in such a massive undertaking, using technology to capture memories, and the surprising generosity of strangers in the unlikeliest of places. While you’ll have to read the book for the full story, prepare yourselves for an audio adventure as they geek out over their shared love for explorers like Andrew Wallace and Neil Armstrong, and relate what drives some people forward into the great unknown.
