Ivan's journey began with a dishwashing job at a sushi bar when he was 15. He discovered a culture and cuisine that would shape the rest of his life. Upon graduation from high school, Ivan decided to major in Japanese language and literature at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After graduating, Ivan immediately moved to Japan to teach English and he quickly cemented his love of everything Japanese.

He returned to the US in 1990 and enrolled in the Culinary Institute of America, and began his culinary training.

Upon graduation from the CIA, and stints at Mesa Grill, Lutece, and Restaurant Associates, Ivan returned to Tokyo to live in the country that he fell in love with. He had still never given thought to combining his love for cooking and Japan, but that was soon to change. Ivan was anxious to start a food-related business in Japan but was unsure of which direction to take. He thought about opening a cooking school, a sandwich shop, even a pizzeria. It was his wife's suggestion that he open a ramen shop.

This move seemed destined for failure in a country where ramen enjoys a cult-like status. Incredibly, Ivan not only succeeded, but became one of the top ramen shops in Tokyo, an unheard of accomplishment for a foreigner. In 2010 a second shop, Ivan Ramen Plus, was opened. In 2012, Ivan returned to NY with the hopes of opening a business back home, while continuing to operate his two shops in Tokyo. In the meantime his cookbook "Ivan Ramen" was published. His first venture in the US, Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop, opened at the Gotham West Market on 600 11th Avenue in November of 2013 to huge crowds and critical acclaim.

Soon after, his US flagship, Ivan Ramen opened at 25 Clinton Street on New York's Lower East Side.

Both restaurants continue to enjoy critical acclaim and have been mentioned in countless magazines, websites, blogs, and television programs. Ivan is widely recognized as the American authority on ramen and all things Japanese. His effortless crossover from American to Japanese cultures has given him a distinct advantage. He speaks fluent Japanese, and has a deep understanding of the culture which allows him to present a product that appeals to both Japanese and American audiences.

In February of 2017 Ivan was featured in the hit NETFLIX series CHEFS TABLE, instantly vaulting him into the company of some of the world's great chefs and restauranteurs. This honor has driven even more fans of ramen into Ivan's restaurants where he continues to serve them his uniquely "Ivan" cuisine.

On this episode, Ivan shares his one way ticket to live in New York City from the turn of the 20th century onwards. He also shares the beauties of ramen noodles and his beloved Japan.

Ivan is just one of the dynamic guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show, where Host Steven Shalowitz explores with his guests where they would go if given a one way ticket, no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary or a state of mind.

Over the last four decades, John Miller has served as Music Coordinator for over 130 Broadway productions and is currently represented by Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations and Oklahoma!, in addition to the upcoming New York production of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. He has worked on Broadway's biggest hits including: The Producers, Once, Jersey Boys, and Hairspray. As a bassist, he has played with everyone from Madonna, Bob Dylan, and Elvis Costello, to Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and the New York Philharmonic. As an actor, he played the role of Dee Dee the drug-dealing percussionist in Amazon Prime's Golden Globe-winning "Mozart in the Jungle" for all four seasons.

Miller's album, "Stage Door Johnny", takes an irreverent and engaging musical trek through a collection of beloved tunes, featuring songs currently on Broadway - "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" from My Fair Lady, "Why Can't You Behave?" from Kiss Me Kate, and "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" from Oklahoma! - in addition to unexpected choices like "Real Live Girl" from Little Me and "I Won't Grow Up" from Peter Pan.

On "Stage Door Johnny", Miller uses jazzy arrangements, humor, even country music inflections to spice up the mix and create what he wryly calls "Quaalude Funk." The album seeks to remind Broadway fans just how versatile the genre is, and how well the songs stand up to new arrangements. Even those who feel predisposed to not like theater music might find themselves humming along to the tunes.

On this episode, John shares his one way ticket to Bossa Nova's early formative years in Brazil. He also talks about opening night on Broadway, offers advice for musicians, and recalls one particularly memorable concert performing with Frank Sinatra at Carnegie Hall.

John is just one of the dynamic guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show, where Host Steven Shalowitz explores with his guests where they would go if given a one way ticket, no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary or a state of mind.

Ian Bremmer is the President and Founder of Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. He is also the president and founder of GZERO Media, a Eurasia Group company dedicated to helping a broad, global audience make sense of today's leaderless world.

Ian is a prolific thought leader and author, regularly expressing his views on political issues in public speeches, television appearances, and top publications, including Time magazine, where he is the foreign affairs columnist and editor-at-large. His latest book "Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism" is a New York Times bestseller.

In 1998, Ian established Eurasia Group with just $25,000. Today, the company has offices in New York, Washington, San Francisco, London, Sao Paulo, Singapore, and Tokyo, as well as a network of experts and resources in 90 countries. As the firm's president and most active public voice, Ian advises leading executives, money managers, diplomats, and heads of state.

Ian is credited with bringing the craft of political risk to financial markets—he created Wall Street's first global political risk index (GPRI)—and for establishing political risk as an academic discipline. His definition of emerging markets—“those countries where politics matters at least as much as economics for market outcomes”—has become an industry standard. “G-Zero,” his term for a global power vacuum in which no country is willing and able to set the international agenda, is widely accepted by policymakers and thought leaders.

In 2007, Ian was named a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, where he is the founding chairman of the Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk. He is the Harold J. Newman Distinguished Fellow in Geopolitics at the Asia Society Policy Institute and serves on the President's Council of the Near East Foundation, the Leadership Council for Concordia, and the Board of Trustees of Intelligence Squared.

Ian earned a master's degree and a doctorate in political science from Stanford University, where he went on to become the youngest-ever national fellow at the Hoover Institution. He received his bachelor's degree in international relations from Tulane University.

Ian has published ten books including the national bestsellers “Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World”, “The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations?”, and "Superpower: Three Choices for America's Role in the World."

On this episode, Ian shares his one way ticket to a slightly higher state of consciousness. He also covers topics from his latest book, "Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism", shares what he's done every morning for the last 13 years (except for two days), and why he holds Christine Lagarde in such high esteem. 

Ian is just one of the dynamic guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show, where Host Steven Shalowitz explores with his guests where they would go if given a one way ticket, no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary or a state of mind.

Steven's guests have included: Nobel Peace Prize Winner, President Jose Ramos-Horta; Legendary Talk Show Host, Dick Cavett; Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz; Fashion Expert, Tim Gunn; Broadcast Legend, Charles Osgood; International Rescue Committee President & CEO, David Miliband; Playwright, David Henry Hwang; Journalist-Humorist-Actor, Mo Rocca; SkyBridge Capital Founder & Co-Managing Partner, Anthony Scaramucci; Abercrombie & Kent Founder, Geoffrey Kent; Travel Expert, Pauline Frommer, as well as leading photographers, artists, chefs, writers, intellectuals and more.

Rick Hodes is an American physician who has lived and worked in Ethiopia for over 30 years. Raised in Long Island, he is the Medical Director of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) in Ethiopia, a 105-year old NGO. He has been in charge of the health of Ethiopians immigrating to Israel. He has also worked with refugees in Rwanda, Zaire, Tanzania, Somalia, and Albania. 

Currently, he practices in the basement of a busy Addis Ababa hospital, concentrating on spinal deformities, and rheumatic and congenital heart disease. All care is free. Unable to get free surgery for his first spine patients, he adopted them and brought them to the US. A colleague recently said “Rick has the largest collection of the worst spines in the world.” He collaborates with colleagues in Ghana, India, Israel, Germany, and the US. He is also the senior consultant at Mother Teresa’s mission.

In 1991, he was part of “Operation Solomon,” which airlifted Ethiopian Jews to Israel.  

Rick was a “CNN Hero" in 2007, and was ABC’s "Person of the Week" in 2010. He is the holder of 5 honorary doctorates and has been commencement speaker at Brandeis, and UC Davis and University of Rochester Medical Schools. The American College of Physicians has awarded him “Mastership” and the Rosenthal Award for creative practice of medicine. He has published over 20 papers in medical journals.

He is the subject of the HBO documentary “Making the Crooked Straight,” as well as the book “This is a Soul: The Mission of Rick Hodes” by Marilyn Berger. A recent documentary, "Zemene", highlights the life of a young spine patient and her journey from rural Gondar to Addis Ababa, spine surgery in Ghana, and speaking in New York City.

Rick lives with his family in Addis Ababa.

Born in Padua, Italy and truly European at heart, Simone is an avid traveler who enjoys touching down in new airports and visiting new countries.

Still not sure what his favorite one is, but Frasier Island in Australia holds a special place in his memory.
