Hello Friends, My name is Dion. I am the host and creator of the Off The Beaten Podcast. I'm an adventurer, educator, jiu-jitsuteiro, bicyclist, avid reader and movie buff.Hey 👋 Off The Beaten Podcast is an intimate exploration of Chicago and it's people. We're based around stories...stories of the people that help make Chicago what it is: The greatest city in the world...or damn close! We're sharing local stories and creating new narratives of a city that is often misunderstood and maligned in the media.
