Description

Do you want to diversify your perspective on road travel?  Host Noami Grevemberg dives deep into the stories and weaves through the challenges, journeys and inspirations of the diverse voices who, often unheard, make the nomadic community great. Noami is a Black woman and a nomad who has been living in her campervan since 2016. She started Diversify Vanlife in 2019 in response to the lack of representation of BIPOC in the road travel community. In this show, you’ll hear from BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disabled, and other underrepresented travelers at the many crossroads of the modern nomadic movement.

What was it like to travel in an era where there were little “Black Wall Streets'' all over the U.S. in the midst of dangerous Jim Crow laws? Alvin Hall, award-winning television and radio broadcaster, best-selling author, and renowned financial educator, transports us into that historic realm. His podcast, Driving the Green Book, guides listeners along his road trip with Janee Wood Weber to the historically Black towns and destinations featured in the Negro Motorist’s Green Book, published from 1936-1967. Noami and co-host Anaïs Moniq explore the nuances of navigating life on the road during a pandemic, holding solidarity with the Asian-American community and how the Green Book paved the way for Diversify Vanlife to become a living resource for nomads of color.Featured Guest Links: www.drivingthegreenbook.com/ | Driving the Green Book Twitter | Alvin Hall Twitter| Macmillan Podcasts Twitter | Macmillan Podcasts Facebook  | Apple Maps Guide | Apple Music Playlist NATI Links: Podcast @nomadsattheintersections Community @diversify.vanlife Host @irietoaurora Co-Host @anaismoniqStay tuned for re-launch of Nomads at the Intersections, coming this Spring, 2024.

Leah Thomas is an intersectional environmental activist on a mission to dismantle systems of oppression in the environmental movement. Her personal platform @greengirlleah was born out of a space that lacked representation of Black people in the outdoors and spoke to her passion of getting people started on their environmental justice journey. Her quest for self-authenticity, environmental justice and sustainability created the momentum for her educational page, @intersectionalenvironmentalist, to go viral. In this episode, Leah drops gem after gem: how destigmatizing cannabis use for Black and Brown people relates to the environmental movement; how making our environmental efforts inclusive and intersectional benefits everyone; and how expanding our understanding of Indigenous land protectors makes our environmental impact more effective. Check out the full interactive show notes on our website at Diversify Vanlife and find the episode transcript here: Episode 3 TranscriptSOCIALSFeatured Guest: @greengirlleah | greengirlleah.com | @intersectionalenvironmentalist| intersectionalenvironmentalist.com| @thegreensgirlco | thegreensgirlco.comNATI Podcast Links: Podcast @nomadsattheintersections Community @diversify.vanlife Host @irietoauroraCo-Host @anaismoniqStay tuned for re-launch of Nomads at the Intersections, coming this Spring, 2024.

Bree (they/them) is a 20-something-year-old Black Queer non-binary nomad. In 2020, they cut their corporate strings to begin a life centered on having full autonomy of their time and purpose. Hottie, their renovated vintage RV, is now home to Bree and their two giant dogs. Aside from imagining a world without white supremacy, they fill their time with hiking, photography, writing and documenting their journey on the road. In this episode, Bree challenges cis-normative views of identity, the discomfort of unlearning, and what it means to be intentional when creating inclusive spaces. Listen til the end to hear their simplistic perspective on how to navigate pronouns like a human being. SOCIALS Podcast @nomadsattheintersections Community @diversify.vanlife Host @irietoaurora Co-Host @anaismoniqGuest @doesthiscountasvanlifeStay tuned for re-launch of Nomads at the Intersections, coming this Spring, 2024.

This heavy year has brought host Noami Grevemberg and season 1 co-host Anaïs Monique incredible growth, with insightful breakthroughs, profound solidarity and an expanding BIPOC nomadic community. This year has also brought us to tears with violence, microaggressions and burn-out. In our pilot episode, Noami and Anaïs sit down and get real with each other like never before. Noami, a former coastal biologist, and Anaïs, a former flight attendant, explore how nomadism has affected their sense of community. Throwing it all the way back to Q3 of 2019, they compare notes on how the founding of Diversify Vanlife literally shifted culture and visibility for BIPOC on the road. How the Uprising of 2020 exposed our roles in the Revolution as well as the holes in our self-care routines. They also speak on what it means to travel slowly in a Eurocentric country where capitalistic values are the measure of success.In this proper introduction, get to know our hosts as they weave through key moments in their journeys: what it looked like to take major risks as Black women and what led them to embracing nomadic life and ultimately, to hosting Nomads at the Intersections podcast. SOCIALSPodcast @nomadsattheintersectionspodCommunity @diversify.vanlifeHost @irietoauroraCo-Host @anaismoniqStay tuned for re-launch of Nomads at the Intersections, coming this Spring, 2024.

Welcome to Nomads at the Intersections podcast! Our hope is that this podcast will inspire us all to shift our perspectives on what road travel looks like, by exploring the stories and experiences of people from different walks of life. We’ll dive into topics from the margins. Topics, both big and small, that will make us rethink what community means to us. We're gonna get raw and real, and have some fun with it. In this season we’ll have conversations with people we don’t often hear from in the road travel community. You know, the ones who don’t always fit the mold. That person you waved to on the highway, or sat next to at the campfire, but you never really heard their story. Those folks who, often unheard, make our community great.Stay tuned for re-launch of Nomads at the Intersections, coming this Spring, 2024.

Women on the Road is the MOST BOMB PODCAST. I LOVE it! I have recently drastically changed my life-I quit my job of 5 years as a Manager in the Hospitality industry, picked up and moved to Thailand to teach English. I know that's not living out of a van, but this podcast is about more than moving into a van, its also for women who are following a different road in life, who want to try something totally new, or are trying to overcome their fear to do ANYthing. I so appreciate this podcast and will continue listening from here in Southeast Asia!
