About The Quest Express Podcast 

How it began...

Think of every movie you've ever loved that featured the city as a main character:

Sleepless in Seattle (Seattle), Sex & The City (New York), La Dolce Vita (Rome), Lost in Translation (Tokyo), City of God (Rio de Janeiro). 

And my personal favorite: Midnight in Paris (Paris).

Since a few months ago, I've been on a quest to find innovators, artists, dreamers & doers, professors & leaders, authors & entrepreneurs, and natives who live in the most unique cities across the planet. 

This podcast is as much a love affair with beloved cities across the globe as it is with cities' storied pasts, battle-fatigued spirits, triumphs, and resilience over time. The cities I've decided to feature on The Quest Express podcast were shaped by their geography, politics, trade, and conflicts, but also by their history, values, traditions, and cultures.

As many of our cities are falling, struggling to keep their identities and sovereignty in the face of a new tyrannical religion called globalism, it seemed like a good time to honor and re-fortify cities, unique traditions & cultures across the globe through the lens of its citizens.

Every city has a story. Every guest has a story. 

This podcast was conceived upon the idea that those stories deserve to be told. Now more than ever...

Meet Carrie Anne, your podcast host and a classical violinist turned event producer. Travel, in Carrie’s eyes “makes us more of ourselves” and is an often underestimated tool for creativity & innovation.

In the 5th grade, Carrie and a friend cooked up their first “radio show” as a ruse to escape recess & the inhospitable weather. 'Not Necessarily the News' was born, which blossomed into a year-long escapade of warm recess & play thanks to the supportive Mr. Fadley. 

In 2020, Carrie hosted & produced a summit featuring 21 authors, shamans & thought leaders, among them Dr. Michael Lennox, C. James Jensen, Georgina Cannon, Itzhak Beery & Michael Okon.

Today, Carrie combines her growth mindset with her passion for curating experiences & events that ignite profits and results. 

Carrie's poised to launch an exclusive, invitation-only membership club in 2024-2025. It’s designed for artists, innovators, and professionals who crave immersive travel and a no-tech zone for their creative endeavors. 

Let The Quest Express be your passport to a world where you’ll be inspired to visit old places in a new way. And to step into a paradigm where time-travel is possible…even if for just a day.
