I created The Bus Driver Experience as a way to gain a new perspective from the unique lives of other people - Olympic athletes, monks, porn stars - to not just learn, but EXPERIENCE what it’s like to be in their shoes for a day.


And do it in a way unlike how every other travel/interview show does it. Most other shows merely talk with these individuals.

But talking with these people isn’t enough for me.


I want to live their unique story. To understand not only what they go through in their day to day, but also why they’re doing it. Follow me on YouTube for videos of the experiences with my guests, and other content.

Kirra Cheers - The Hypersexuality of the Female Figure - #010

Today on the show, again, we're going to be tackling the idea of censorship. The people who think things shouldn't be seen or things shouldn't be expressed, or the idea that certain things when they're portrayed are going to project bad ideas is a big responsibility in our society. And in this democracy, in the republic, in the free state that we get to live in, it's very unique privilege to be able to decide what can be said, what can be seen. 


Today's guest is Kirra Cheers. Kirra is a photographer/director whose work explores themes of connection and sexuality within an urban dating culture. Originally from Australia, Kirra now lives and works in New York City. She is currently living in New York City. She's a photo based journalist who looked at questions and looks at dating in an urban environment. 


For today's show, Kirra and I are topless during this podcast and we're going to be pushing the bounds and the limits of Google, Facebook, Instagram and the ways they limit and censor what and how things can be seen and perceived. 


If you're in New York City, please go check out her show at the box August 24th. It is a Free The Nipple Party.

Tayo Rockson - The Power of Inclusivity - #009

Inclusivity is defined as an intention or policy of including people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized. Now. Where you may stand on this word, its definition and how it's perceived today. Some people believe this is the most inclusive time. And some people believe this is the most exclusive time. So today I'm bringing on an expert and someone who I believe not just talks great to inclusive communities, but also exclusive communities without making anybody feel marginalized. 


I present to you Tayo Rockson. Tayo is a keynote speaker and author in New York City. He specializes in working with companies and corporations, helping to bring them into a digital age. Titles become a good friend of mine, not just a buddy I podcast with here and there. And we had an incredible conversation, conversations about inclusivity versus exclusivity. Are we living in the most inclusive time? And what is America's stance and what is the betrayal and message we are trying to portray and convey to the rest of world, being the leaders in how we want this world to move in a moral and positive direction? And of course, Tayo and I got into, you know, a little bit of Twitter talk, Lionel Messi verse, Christiano Ronaldo, who's the better player? Who has a better legacy? 


Please enjoy the show.

Dekunle Somade & John Hammond - The Meaning In Comedy #008

How do you find meaning in your work? What happens when the audience doesn’t laugh and what can you do to keep challenging yourself despite that?


Everybody, please welcome comedian Dekunle Somade and producer John Hammond to the bus! 


These two superhumans are not only incredible sources of inspiration, but John here is also one of the biggest reasons my content you see here at BDE looks so good.


Separately:


Dekunle is an independent director and comedian, co-creator of the DIY comedy show “Cry Baby” and has just finished his 10-part web series: “Dekunle wants to die”


John is a comedy director and producer with a mountain of work so big that it just keeps on growing. His work has earned his clients millions of views online, and has even created viral hits.


Together, they’re the founders of the production company “Studio 181”, with their latest release on Dekunle’s comedy single: No Avocados In The Ghetto


As comedians and directors, they’re the perfect people to ask on the struggles of creative work and content creation. And as you’ll see in this hilarious episode, we’ll explore their views on finding meaning in your work, what happens after you release something to the world and the difficulties that come with that. And much more...


Please enjoy the show.

An0maly - Everything Wrong With Youtube Today #007

What can independent creators do against a youtube that favors corporations? What problems does this cause and where is the future of news and media headed?


This week we explore these questions with independent youtube creator, news analyst and hip hop composer - An0maly, who’s here with us on the bus!


An0maly is a world-renowned news commenter and hip-hop artist. With over 250 million+ views to his name, he’s garnered a cult following for his views on politics, traditional news outlets and the media as a whole. His goal is to lead the charge to restore common sense, truth, knowledge & wisdom in the entertainment world.


This week we got the chance to learn how a politically charged youtube channel sees the newest youtube algorithm changes. And with the release of the creator Coffeebreak’s video (here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDqBeXJ8Zx8) we explore his views on how the Youtube algorithm change affects independent creators, why it favors big corporations and the platform’s problem as a whole. From there, learn about what’s the toughest parts about talking politics on Youtube, how powerful Google really is, where the future of media is headed and why you should question everything.

This is a spectacular episode that talks about everything in both Youtube and politics. It's a show you should definitely tune into.


So please, enjoy the ride!

Shawn Baker - Everything You Didn't Know About Meat - #006

How INSANE would it be to only eat meat for the rest of your life? Wouldn’t you need supplements or something? And hey, isn’t eating loads of red meat bad for you? The answer to all of this might be, surprisingly, no…


Everybody, please welcome Dr. Shawn Baker to the show. Both a lifelong elite-level athlete and huge carnivore diet advocate, he uses his knowledge from his years as an orthopedic surgeon to break the rules around nutrition and challenge the status quo on what IS healthy for you.


He’s a multiple weightlifting world record holder, has served in the United States Air Force as the chief of orthopedics and is the one who wrote the actual book on the carnivore diet. His range of knowledge on meat, the human body and history seems endless at times, which is what I love so much about him, and I think you’ll enjoy it too.


So please sit back and enjoy as we explore everything meat in this episode. From how our sources of food have changed over history, to the pros and cons of going on the carnivore diet to finally talking about nutrition and how meat affects our bodies and our minds.


Enjoy the ride!
