ugo-and-ralphAlright, my dear listeners, we are at episode 50 of the show, which means I’ve been publishing new episodes every week for almost one full year, never skipping a week.

Let me tell you, this is a lot of work, especially since I do it all on my own, from finding and inviting guests, interviewing them, editing the audio, publishing the episode, sharing on social media, the whole shebang! It takes hours of my time every week, but I’m happy to do it, because you seem to love it and because it is working great to put my name out.

In addition, it has enabled me to network with some great people.

Some of those people I have met personally, some have become long-distance friends and today I want to introduce you to one of them. The reason for this is because, starting today, he is going to co-host the show with me. That not only means being able to share some of the load I mentioned above, but also being able to create new and interesting content and taking the show to new heights.

If you have listened to episode 13, you already know this guy, or maybe you already know him by other means, but in any case, please welcome great travel photographer and all-around nice guy, Mr. Ralph Velasco!

Travel photography instructor, author and international guide, Ralph has organized and led a variety of cultural tours around the world, including to Egypt, Mexico’s Copper Canyon, Bhutan, Nepal, Cambodia, Iceland, Central Europe, Morocco, Vietnam, the Adriatic, Romania, Turkey, Spain, Death Valley, Chicago and San Francisco and others. Additionally, as of this writing he’s organized and led more than a dozen fully-licensed People-to-People programs to Cuba.

Duration 22m 11s.

We want to hear from you! What are you struggling with in your photography? What parts of the world would you like to know more about? Do you have any guests to suggest? Please leave us some feedback in the comments. Thank you!
