Welcome! My journalism career and curiosity about the world started while working as a copy boy for the Wall Street Journal. I’ve logged over a million miles in my travels across the globe, from Morocco to China, up to the Arctic Circle and across Southern Africa.
But, those who know me know that I would much rather be looking at the world than having the world look at me. Regardless, I thank you for being here. I hope you enjoy your visit.
Most of the posts featured here are expanded versions of my regular NPR Digital Media Podcast shows from the Lowell Thomas Award-winning show, Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer, featured on iTunes, NPR One, the NPR Podcast Directory, and more than 15 other podcast sites around the world. It’s easy to subscribe to the Podcast on Stitcher.com, player.fm (UK) , iTunes and more than 15 other Droid and Apple friendly podcast channels around the world
Enjoy the trip!
