Planet Service Announcement


Ben Sollee is a musician and activist hailing from the great state of Kentucky. In this episode, Ben talks about traveling the world for decades as a rock star cellist, touring the country with his band by bicycle, and why he's taking a break from the road to focus on a new non-profit in his home state.
