Behind the Brilliance 083: Colin Wright Reloaded


Season 5 is here! If the emails, tweets, and messages are any indication, you missed me as much as I missed you. I’m super excited to bring you an awesome season 5 with more interviews, more solo episodes, and more surprises.

I intro this episode with a recap of my hiatus and some housekeeping plus stories about European travel, theft, and bed times.

This week’s guest is the international man of mystery, Colin Wright. If you’ve been around since the beginning, you probably remember that Colin Wright was the first ever guest on the show – he was literally episode 001. On this Colin Reloaded episode, we chat about what he’s been up to since he was last on the show and get into other topics like travel, relationships, earning money as a creative, and much more.



COLIN WRIGHT is an author, entrepreneur, and full-time traveler. He moves to a new country every four months based on the votes of his readers, and is the co-founder of Asymmetrical Press.

Colin has been featured through his work and interviews on hundreds of TV stations, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and podcasts, worldwide.
