May You Have Bumpy Travels: Combating Road Bias

Wherever you travel, it’s important to remember that sticking to the main road gives you road bias. Getting off the paved roads in Ethiopia, I was reminded that the majority of the world’s population are poor farmers. In fact, while I might feel like the norm on this planet, the off-the-grid farmer in Ethiopia, far from the nearest paved road, is much closer to the global norm.

I was in Ethiopia with my crew, filming an upcoming special called “Ethiopia, Guatemala, Hunger, and Hope.” It will air this November on public television across the US.
