S2 Ep26: The Man Who Walked 4,000 Miles Just to Listen

At 23, Andrew Forsthoefel headed out the back door of his home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. He had with him only a backpack, an audio recorder, and a sign that read “Walking to Listen.” He had just graduated from Middlebury College and was ready to begin his adult life, but he didn’t know how. So he decided to take a cross-country quest for guidance, one where everyone he met would be his guide.

In this episode Andrew shares with Dr. Hallowell the lessons he learned through the power of connection and what he’s up to today.
