Media Inquiries and Appearances

What makes us different?

TWBR is a grassroots company dedicated to increasing interest in adventure, world issues, and cultures. Every part of the trip is going to be documented through video, journal entries, and photographs.

Our commitment to keeping the site interactive and our content at a ground level perspective will give us an edge to provide our audience with the most realistic view of the world possible. With our education initiative we truly hope to make a difference by increasing our society’s knowledge and understanding of the global community. In the end, our expedition will not simply be something that our audience can watch happen, but something that they can participate in as well.
