Gaia GPS Offroad Podcast

From the host:

What do you do when you’re unhappy in your corporate job? You hit the road and drive – all the way to Australia., Canada, and northbound to the Arctic. That’s how Monique Song found her way into offroading, eventually becoming the beloved Overland Lady. Monique wields both a wrench and a flatiron (for her hair) and gives wise insights on how each tool has played an important role in her adventures in her 100 series Toyota Landcruiser.

Unfortunately, her well-known and loved Landcruiser is no more. Monique joined the rollover club on the the Dempster Highway last fall, totalling her rig and leaving her stranded in the remote Arctic. Tune into the podcast to hear Monique describe what it felt like to experience a crash of this magnitude and walk away with minor injuries. Plus, learn the full details of the recovery efforts and get a sneak peek at the rig she’s eyeing next — this time it’s all about the gas mileage.

Lady Overlander Radio

From the host:

Monique is the girl behind the YouTube channel the “Overland Lady.”  Monique went from sheltered city girl to adventurer and, like many, felt the call to adventure to escape living a life that was more “expected” rather than authentic. She took the leap, left it all behind and travelled to Australia where she found her own rhythm and purpose. She finds peace in the wilderness and often spends prolonged periods of solo time off the grid in her 4WD Toyota Landcruiser. She spreads the love for wild places with everyone she meets both online and offline. Monique inspires young women around the world to break gender, racial, cultural, and societal norms, and opt for a life that’s self-fulfilling and self-sufficient.
