About Us


Bump in the Road came about thanks to a bump in the road. More specifically, Covid-19.

Our sister site, www.CancerRoadTrip.com was on track to give people amazing bucket list trips, and then to capture it all on film for education and inspiration. Think transformational travel on a global level!

Then Covid-19 hit. What was one to do?


The Answer: Travel Virtually


So that’s what we do. We travel the world to join in conversations with inspirational people who have navigated their own life changing, bump in the road. And we share their concerns, their fears, their thoughts and insights with you.


Bump In The Road is available on all major podcast platforms and here, on the website.



Turn off the TV.


Disconnect from social media.


Fill your world with real life, thought provoking inspiration!
