Scott Gurian-

Scott Gurian is a Peabody award-winning reporter who’s spent nearly two decades working in radio and online journalism. Between 2012 and 2015, he investigated New Jersey’s long-term recovery from Superstorm Sandy for NJ Spotlight and WNYC, the public radio station in New York. Before that he was a producer on a daily, national talk show called The Takeaway, and he spent five years as a radio news director in Oklahoma City. His reporting has taken him to far-flung places including Cuba, Haiti, Cambodia, and Iran. It’s aired on NPR, the BBC, and dozens of public radio programs and stations around the country. Currently, he’s the host and producer of a podcast called Far From Home (https://farfromhomepodcast.org), where he tells stories of his unexpected adventures and chance encounters with interesting people around the world. For the first season, he’s documenting an 11,000 mile road trip he took through 18 countries, 8 time zones, 5 mountain ranges, and a few deserts, from London to Mongolia in a ridiculously tiny car, raising money for charity.
