I love travel and foreign cultures, and it was great to find a podcast that adds an entertaining, offbeat angle to a genre that can quickly become stale. Highly recommended.

If you love travel you will certainly love this podcast! Eric is an amazing story teller and he will transport you to another world every time. I definitely recommend this podcast to all travel lovers.
Impressive and addicting!
February 14, 2017 by JenniferRendel12 from United States
This podcast transports me evey episode to a entertaining adventure that lets me leave my current reality and allows me to see this crazy world as told by the euthusiastic, talented, and engaging storyteller, Eric Trules. I find his travel stories enlightening and very relaxing to sit back and listen to. Besides Trules mastery of telling his stories, the podcast is well-produced with excellent audio and sounds that help in making this such an addictive listen. Can't wait for more!
Love and the Devil's Nose
February 10, 2017 by Angelesgirl from United States
This was a delightful and entertaining narrative. I tuned in thinking it was a podcast about one of Eric's wild travels only to find out that this was a piece about marriage, and a damned good one at that.
Crafted with a love of travel
February 6, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
Love the story telling aspect of the early episodes: the score, the performance. It's really engaging. As a podcaster, I love the behind the scenes episodes as well. Looking forward to where this show will go!
An auditory treat
January 30, 2017 by phillytonicaragua from United States
Trules' voice and the sound design make E-travels with E-trules a lovely soundtrack when working. His stories will transport you to another world while you tap away at your cubicle. I hope he post more and more often! Highly recommend.

Love the interplay between discovering new places in the world that are ancient and making new personal discoveries. Yes, he's crazy to be taking some of these trips, but what else is new? He's being truly Trules. His inner clown is always smiling.
Thanks a bunch.

An aural E-venture

This show rocks!

I love it! 5+

I was lucky enough to be in Echo Park, Los Angeles this November and heard some of Eric's podcasts before they were even available on itunes. He has the perfect pitch and tone of the seasoned traveller and raconteur, I slipped comfortably away and was lost in distant lands and times.
Storytelling at its finest

A real treat to hear Eric's voice among hoards of podcasts out there. His point-of-view, cadence, and energy makes for trascendent listening. LOVE it!
Got Me Yearning to Backpack Again
December 15, 2016 by Speaking247 from United States
Trules has such a great radio voice. Truly enjoyed the podcast, as it got me yearning to backpack again. Really high-quality production, with great music (and I dig the whistling at the end).
Wonderful storytelling from an incredible, iconoclastic, ramblin professor.
December 12, 2016 by Trevor M Davis from United States
Eric Trules is a natural born storyteller. He also happens to be an ever-searching, wonderfully curious, thoughtful and profound individual, with a unique perspective on the wide world -- a world which he's circumnavigated far more than I could even imagine. Though, after listening to his podcast, it's inspiring me to attempt to catch up someday and ramp up the timeline on my exploration of this mysterious, beautiful world.
As much as the travel adventures are wonderful to hear on their own though, the real treasure here comes in his thoughtful reflection on humanity in its many garments and idiosyncracies. He certainly could have been a cultural anthropologist if he didn't become a theatre professor...but I'm glad he went toward the stage; now we get the benefits of his runminations on humanity through the vessel of a uniquely gifted, entertaining storyteller.
I've seen him perform many times, but this podcast is a great reminder of how much character and warmth his voice carries with every phrase as a trained performer. Trules is a cultural treasure, and I can't wait to hear more installments of this powerful travelogue.
Tules trancends travel triumphantly
December 12, 2016 by gijjiu from United States
The podcast is a delightful medley of travel, history, and Trules! His voice over the music and sound makes it easy to picture the fantastic stories.
December 9, 2016 by Billyhc from United States
The storytelling is as hypnotic as the music.
If you love traveling, this is your jam!
December 6, 2016 by MMMMM12345MMMMM from United States
For those who love traveling but don't get to do so as often as you wish, this is the go-to podcast!
December 5, 2016 by SirScottMullin from United States
Eric creates a sense of place like no one else. I felt like I was right there alongside him on all these amazing journeys. What an experience!
December 5, 2016 by PouxDawg from United States
Love, love, LOVE this! Inspires me to keep exploring the world with our new little family addition. Great first episode.
December 5, 2016 by SF1994yes from United States
Trules has a natural knack for storytelling, and exploration. Looking forward to the new show!
Well-produced, personal insights about the world

The widely traveled Trules is also a gifted writer, performer and teacher — and this podcast benefits from all those talents
He tells it "Trully..."
December 2, 2016 by MoondogMulv from United States
Trulles is a unique, funny, and intelligent guide in the world of travel, life, and love.
Rich and Textured Storytelling
December 1, 2016 by Irma Gerd from United States
Between the music, sound design, and pleasant low rumble of Trules' voice, this is a podcast that will satisfy that craving for a story that lets you live by your mind's eye. In the introduction of the podcast, Trules begins laying down the different stories and inspirations that he has quilted together over his life. From his natural curiosity in history to his appreciation for the unforeseen, you get the sense that Trules has a narrative that bridges his personal discoveries with the shifts the world has undergone throughout his life.
I'm looking forward to seeing how these stories flesh out. I can tell that we're in for a treat.
November 30, 2016 by Tucci1776 from United States
Really great and entertaining podcast. Hooks you from the first episode.

The podcast's professional quality, coupled with Trules' creativity and natural skill for storytelling, will keep you coming back for more. It's a must - can't wait for more!
Impressive and Entertaining!

Based on the promo episode of this show, I've subscribed and am definitely looking forward to more! This podcast is extremely well-produced, with audio that excites and amuses. I love the concept of unique, personal and engaging travel stories from the host's real-life experiences, combined with audio scapes that bring listeners directly into the story. I have a feeling this show will be one to keep an eye on, as it holds a great deal of promise for future success. Can't wait to hear the many places Eric Trules will take us!
