Can travel be dangerous, before you even leave home?

My favorite book blog and all in one site for fostering creativity,, posted a fantastic short video, simply titled, The Gap, using a speech given by Ira Glass, host of This American Life podcast. That short video drew me to his podcast and the first episode I listened to talks about something all travelers are familiar with - the  anti-malaria drug, and stories by some who took Lariam.

In act 3 of the podcast, we'll hear an interview with David Maclean, telling his story of waking up one morning, on a train platform in India with no idea who he was or why he was there. No money. No passport. No identity.
