Elaine Chukan Brown, a Purposeful Journey: Alaska, Indigenous Values, & Community Mindedness

"I think that when you grow up in a remote area, Native or not, you just understand that most of life is beyond your control."

Elaine Chukan Brown is a prolific and successful wine writer, who's work includes being the American Wine Specialist for JancisRobinson.com, contributing writer for Wine & Spirits Magazine and has been featured in Robb Report, MensHealth, Decanter and many more wine and lifestyle outlets.

Her fascinating story goes far beyond just wine, having grown up in a remote village of Alaska with her rich indigenous culture. We explore her life and reflections, including how she applies her lessons in purposeful entrepreneurship, some very cool travel tips to Alaska and much more.

After our conversation I can appreciate even more her passion and depth that comes through her wine writing.

I hope you enjoy!

About the Podcast

PEOPLE Behind the Places
Behind every place is a story and behind every story are the people.
Behind every place is a story and behind every story are the people.

Thank you for joining our conversation with the PEOPLE Behind the Places, sponsored by BE Local. We’ll explore their lives, inspirations, challenges, lessons learned and anything interesting in between.

What can we learn of how they craft a good life pursuing their passion and sharing it with the world in the places we love?

For those natural places which no person can claim creation of, we’ll talk with those intimately familiar with them, share experiences and learn how we can experience and preserve them.

BE Local introduces the Art of Experience Curation to inspire the lives of people through sharing experiences uniquely matched for them and simplifying their travel planning process.

Please subscribe and join us on this journey of exploring the PEOPLE Behind the Places.
