In this episode, we catch up with Nick and Lins, two awesome nudists who travel the world visiting nudist and naturist destinations and then blog about their experiences on their very popular blog, Naked Wanderings. We'll hear about what they've been up to and their thoughts on nudism and naturism coming out of COVID and beyond.
We'll also hear from Evan, a relatively new nudist, about how he got into the nudist way of life, and his link to nudism that goes back several generations.
