In a report to the October 2017 CPMM newsletter I summarized my year-and-a-half travel in the ministry of equality featuring the book Viking Economics.  Starting in 2016, I travelled to 20 states and four foreign countries, usually at the initiative of Friends but also speaking at bookstores, universities, and other public forums.
