Things to know
The website building engine I'm using automatically wrote the following:
"I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements brought me to found Wonders of the World back in 2000. Since then, the blog has been thriving, and has quickly gained a loyal following. I invite you to browse my site, learn about my passions, and explore what excites and interests you as well."
Virtually none of that is true.
I'm a middle-aged American who, for my midlife crisis, decided to launch a podcast, which is far cheaper than a sports car.
This podcast is all about my personal loves: travel, history, and food. I am not particularly qualified to do this, beyond being a reasonably good storyteller and a good eater. My bachelor's degree is in French Cultural Studies, which helps for the handful of French episodes, but not much more than that. And I've only (so far) been to 25% of the places I'm documenting. I have eaten all the food, though!
Thankfully, since starting the show in 2016, I've been fortunate enough to interview experts and travelers from across the globe, all in an attempt to bring you closer to our shared culture and history. There are amazing stories to tell, and I hope you'll share your time with me.
Enjoy the show!
