Trey’s 360 Podcast – Dr David Sands on the wonders of zinc

Dr David Sands, as well as being a rather talented poet, is a professor of Plant Pathology, Bacteriology and Biocontrol of Weeds with Plant Pathogens. In this chat we talk a little about genes before moving on to the benefits of zinc. Then, as with all good science talk, we end with a poem.

If this is your first time seeing a 360 Video, note you can grab the screen and look anywhere! Or alternatively, here is the audio version…

Daily Photo – The Public Library in Boston

This is one of the coolest libraries I’ve ever visited! I was once again paranoid I’d be kicked out for taking photos, but they didn’t seem to mind at all! I didn’t take in my tripod because I don’t usually use it in the daytime. Besides, it was bright enough inside to squeeze off three brackets and make sure that my shutter speed was fast enough for no blur. My rule of thumb on that is to make sure my slowest exposure is at least 1/30th of a second!

Morning in Angkor Wat

Trey’s 360 Podcast – Fossil Hunting with Dr. Jack Horner in Yellowstone

You’ll probably want to check out the video version of this one but I’ll include the audio option as well. 🙂

Join Dr. Jack Horner (part of the inspiration for Sam Neill’s character in Jurassic Park) and I on a short exploration of Slough Creek where he explains the makeup of the landscape while we hunt for some fossils.

Daily Photo – Morning in Angkor Wat

I made it out to this amazing temple three mornings in a row to take photos. Each one was more beautiful than the last. One of my favorite bits was there were a bunch of young Cambodian boys running all over the place offering to bring me coffee. They have this coffee there that they mix with evaporated milk to make it extra creamy.

The Lightshow in Singapore

Psychedelic and MDMA research expanding at Johns Hopkins

Here’s a new article about psychedelic and MDMA research being done at Johns Hopkins Medicine. I think this is great stuff and I fully support it.

Trey’s 360 Podcast – Dr. Jack Horner on the Conscious Slime Mold

When he’s not discovering and naming Maiasaura, or advising on the Jurassic Park movies (where he was part of the inspiration for Sam Neill’s character) Dr. Jack Horner has some fascinating things to say about slime mold.

Daily Photo – The Lightshow in Singapore

Every night in Singapore there is a big light show with lasers and music and all sorts of stuff going on. There are thousands of good photos already, so I was running around trying to find a few unique angles to catch the action. Here’s one that I kinda like. This is the Marina Bay Sands hotel and that huge structure that goes across all three buildings is actually a swimming pool.

The Endless Forests of Malaysia

Fred the Dolphin

Today’s Podcast is a really fun walk with Fred Newman while we were staying at an awesome ranch in Montana. How do I describe this guy? He’s the sort of man that would not like any sort of description, I believe! But, in short, he’s one of the most amazing sound-effects and voice guys in the world. He’s very respected and you’ve probably heard his voice in everything from Doug to Men in Black to A Prairie Home Companion. From Wikipedia, regarding the latter, “In an audience favorite feature of the program, Keillor tells an apparently impromptu story that is funny because it requires Newman to strain to supply rapid-fire sound effects for unusual occurrences and obscure animals.”

Or if the audio version is more to your liking…

Daily Photo – The Endless Forests of Malaysia

One day we took a boat out to visit some floating markets on these winding rivers in Langkawai. After you get up high, you get a great perspective on how heavily forested (jungled? is that a word? Jungly?) this island is. It reminds me a lot of Vietnam or Cambodia in a way…

Snowy Fantasyland in Japan

Podcast Saturday!

Before Passport Sunday, it’s Podcast Saturday again…

Season 8 Episode 1 of “Walk n’ Talk with Trey” This Episode: “Patrick Crawshaw and the language of Interior Design”

I was up in the Bay of Islands and stayed at this incredible place called Donkey Bay ( https://www.donkeybayinn.co.nz/ ). I was invited there by my friend David Maxwell who runs https://www.eighthwonder.travel/ . It just so happens that his half-brother, Patrick Crawshaw did the interior design for this unique place!

Trailer for 7 Days in Hell

This is, by far, my favorite sports mockumentary!

Daily Photo – Snowy Fantasyland in Japan

I slept inside one of these old farmhouses for a few nights. They look very cozy, don’t they? Well, let me assure you… they were absolutely freezing! The only warm room was the dining room in the middle where they made my dinner, but when I went back to my little room, it was way below freezing. I had about 30 seconds to get onto my futon under a blanket before I froze to death. The worst thing was waking up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, which was quite a long way away!

Close-Up of the Harbor

It’s Podcast Time Again…

There are now 8 episodes of my audio podcast available on your favourite streaming services (iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify or in some regions Google Play).

In this weeks episode with Doug Moores, he and I are walking along the coast on the North Island of New Zealand near Te Arai. Doug does many things… podcaster, healer, yogi, builder, and well, you name it! Our talk spans from everything consciousness to psychedelics!

Monolink at Burning Man at the Mayan Warrior

This guy is one of my favorites… and a great set too.

Daily Photo – Close-Up of the Harbor

Remember yesterday’s shot of the harbor, this is a close-up on another evening. You’ll notice how different and dramatic the skies are each evening. This is one thing that I like most about taking photos on islands… you almost always get incredible skies as the sun is going down. That only seems to happen about 20% of the time here in the mountains.

Happy Woman in St. Petersberg

A New Episode of My Podcast

In this episode, part 2 of a conversation while walking on the El Camino in Spain, I talk with Kevin Kelly about one of his many projects, the 10,000 Year Library. We also talk about what to do with all the existing libraries in the world… access to information… the future of libraries and knowledge curation… and more!

And if you missed it, part 1 is here.

Funny lady laughing at herself on YouTube

This reminds me a lot of today’s daily photo 🙂

Daily Photo – Happy Woman in St. Petersberg

I only had one quick day in this awesome city. I tried to make the most of it by taking as many people photos as possible. Some of these Russians had the grumpiest faces I’ve ever seen. I think they were so confused while I was taking the photos… it doesn’t seem like a hobby over there at all. I hardly saw anyone else carrying around cameras for street photography. My theory is that the older generation that lived in Communism for so long are just generally distrusting of others… especially others with cameras. But that didn’t stop me.

Daily Photo – Having Fun in the Library

When we went to the crazy library in Tianjin, we decided to have some fun and do some posed shots. That Curtis there on the right and the lady on the left was one of the ladies from the Ritz-Carlton that brought us here. She is probably the most giggly person I have ever met in my life. Literally, anything I would say or do would make her giggle uncontrollably. But, I actually like this quality in people… I like when they laugh at my jokes even when they make absolutely no sense.

Sri Lanka Fashion Party!

It appears one of my photos was used for some funky dresses at a fashion show in Sri Lanka. Nothing says the effective end of a religious non-Catholic civil war better than a flowing gown adorned in a Catholic cathedral.

Daily Photo – Mont Saint Michel From Above

This was one of my most scary quad flights! I ended up getting some really cool photos of this place (this one included), but there was a lot of concern in getting the quad safely back home. Luckily, Curtis and Tane were there as spotters to make sure nothing went awry. You’ll see a scene from this same spot in the Ritz-Carlton Yacht video I posted a few days ago.
