Legendary travel writer Paul Theroux joins us this week for a candid, backstage interview delving into his five decades spent traveling the world and writing about it.

He delves into what brought him to traveling and to writing, and how those two things are inexorably linked, at least for him. He remarks on why he thinks that growing up in a big family helped teach him how to be a good traveler. He also explains what it means to travel “close to the ground” and offers advice on how to do so (and why you would want to).

Grab a copy of Theroux’s latest book, On the Plain of Snakes, A Mexican Journey here.
