Greg Jorgensen

Founder/Co-host (Season 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

It all started when my best friend suggested we go to Thailand to visit a friend of ours in Chiang Mai in 2001. I told him I can’t just “go to Thailand” and he asked why not. I didn’t have a suitable answer, so we planned a four month trip full of beaches, palm trees, and looking at maps on street corners. Turns out he wasn’t much for traveling though, and went back to Canada after 12 days. I decided to see how things played out, and I’m still here. In that time I’ve taught English, worked as a team building facilitator, done voice overs, gotten shot at (in movies), performed standup comedy, and written enough travel stories to fill a very short book. My interests are movies, technology, bike riding, and short walks on the beach (it’s too hot here to take long walks).

I moved to Thailand in 2000, mostly just to take a break from the American rat race. By ‘break,’ I expected to be in Thailand for 6 months or maybe even one year (!). But everything changed after my first few months in Bangkok. It’s hard to pinpoint any specific thing – it’s just that my life became an adventure. Although I’ve worked many different jobs over the years (mostly academic related), that feeling of ‘adventure’ has never really left – and so I never have.
Currently, I work at a Thai university, and my job is basically to explain ‘the West’ (mostly the U.S. and Great Britain) to Thai students. Having to do that has forced me to better understand where Thais are coming from, and I find being in between these two fascinating worlds a blast!
In my spare time, I’m both a music and a movie person; I’m especially into live blues music and the American ‘New Hollywood’ films of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Co-host (Season 2)

I took a sabbatical in 2015… and never looked back.

After my year abroad — 13 countries on three continents — I’ve decided to make Bangkok my home base for 2016. I’m providing services for a select group of clients, focused on podcasting, media distribution, and strategic consulting services

My podcasting CV tells the story best. I started podcasting on October 14, 2004. According to Podcast Alley, I was the 40th podcaster ever. I’m also the co-author of Podcasting for Dummies and Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies. I launched and managed a network of over 700 audiobooks released in serialized podcast form. I’ve spent over a decade in or adjacent to the C-Suite in marketing departments or digital agencies focused on new media and innovation. Today, I still share my stories with the world via podcasts.
