Born and raised in Chicago, Steven Shalowitz conceived the idea for "The One Way Ticket Show" podcast while producing and hosting a radio show in Singapore. He explores with his high profile guests where they'd go if given a one way ticket - no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary, or state of mind.
An exhibited photographer with a penchant for travel to rogue nations, Steven’s adventures have taken him from North Korea to Libya, Iran to Burundi, and Syria to Burkina Faso.
Steven earned his B.A. in Chinese Language & Literature from Washington University in St. Louis, and his M.A. in International Relations from The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C.
