About Us

Do you want to diversify your perspective on road travel? Host Noami Grevemberg and co-host Anaïs Monique dive deep into the stories and weave 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.

Reclaiming Indigenous Sovereignty

EOur first guest on Nomads at the Intersections podcast is Wynne Weddell, Native American of the Yankton Sioux Tribe. A hiker, nomad, and full-time beadwork artist - Wynne joins our host, Noami, for this in-person interview on the traditional lands of the Pascua Yaqui and Tohono O’odham in the Southwest. Listen as she shares her story of leaving her homeland to follow her nomadic passions in the forests of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Wynne also recounts her experience at the Dakota access pipeline, shares stories about her great grandmother as a front-line activist during the American Indian Movement, and how Indigenous peoples must lead the conversation on environmental activism and so much more. Check out our Show Notes for journal prompts that dig deeper into how your story and Wynne’s experience intersect.

Where To Next?: Series Finale

This is the last episode of Women on the Road, but by no means the end of our community.

In this finale episode, Noami and Laura talk about what this transition means to them, as well as how we hope to see you take part in where we’re going next.

Where To Next?: Series Finale

What We Carry in the Passenger Seat: Kathy Karlo

For some of us, what got us in the car in the first place are the things we’re running from-- but no matter how many miles we drive, those things end up in the passenger seat, along for the ride with us. Kathy Karlo, a climber, writer, Director of No Man’s Land Film Festival, and host and creator of the For the Love of Climbing podcast, is someone who knows the contents of her passenger seat well-- both literally and figuratively. And she uses the weight of what she carries to build something bigger than herself.

Big News: We’re Making Some Changes!

This platform as you know it started several years ago in response to the lack of representation of female road travelers in the media we consume. And we feel, more strongly than ever, that in the spirit of what WOTR has aimed to do-- broaden our perception of who is on the road, and elevate those voices and stories-- that our current team at Ravel Media are not the ones who need to be hosting these conversations moving forward. That’s why we’re making some big changes.

Big News: We’re Making Some Changes!

Qualified: Laura Edmondson

Whether on or off the road, it can be easy to tell yourself you can’t do new things. That you’re too inexperienced. That you don’t have the skills. That you’re not qualified. If that’s been you, then this episode is just what you need to hear. Because Laura Edmondson-- a road traveler, digital creator, educator, podcast host, athlete, and DEI and Sustainability consultant-- has got a lot to say about moving forward in the face of feeling unqualified and showing yourself that it’s possible.

A Recipe for Life Lessons: Anna Tedesco

Nobody ever said living on the road was easy, but it definitely teaches us life lessons. In this episode, van dweller Anna Tedesco shares what she's learned from over two years of solo road travel, how it's helped her navigate the mental and emotional challenges a pandemic can bring about, and the important role cooking good food plays in all of it.

Nature Mama Reads: Alessandra Hurt

For many reasons, many of us have been traveling less and reading more right now, which is why hearing from mother, outdoor adventurer, Licensed Nursing Assistant, and book reviewer Alessandra Hurt is especially important right now. Because what we can learn from stillness, BIPOC authors, accessible travel, and Alessandra’s insights on motherhood are all lessons we can use to make our world a better place.
