Jo Patti Munisteri (Joanne) is an independent field researcher, analyst, and educator. She joined the show to discuss her book Traveling off the X.

Starting her journey behind the Iron Curtain in Romania, tracking Spider monkeys in Tikal, following the Green March in Morocco, working on Ascension Island in the South Atlantic, riding horses in Umbria, training teachers in Borneo, to living under strict Sharia law in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan, Jo takes us with her on inner and outward explorations in exotic locations. She writes of ways to navigate physical, emotional, and even spiritual risks and pain while traveling to parts of the world few have seen or described.
