The top rated travel podcast on iTunes, Extra Pack Of Peanuts (which I was a guest on last year) recently posted a compelling two part interview with Alex Owumi. He’s an American professional basketball player who was playing for a team in Benghazi, Libya in 2010. Three months after he signed arrived he was caught up in the Libyan revolution – a story he explains to Extra Pack of Peanuts host Travis Sherry.
