It was 1994 when I first met our guest for this week’s episode. As the show manager for Up With People’s Cast E94, I had the opportunity to travel with Alastair Cameron during our stay/tour of Australia.
As you’ll quickly find out during our conversation, he’s the type of guy you want to have a drink or cup of coffee with. He’s been to more than 75 countries and for more than 20 years now has been a true citizen of the world.
We caught up with him via Skype in London, England. Enjoy the conversation!
