Life Done Different

Dec 5, 2017

When it comes to dream jobs, I’m pretty sure that I’m not alone in saying that I’d love to be Anthony Bourdain. Think about it. He travels the world, experiences cultures through food and shares it with us. What’s not to love? 
But rather than dream about the job, our guest this week made it a reality. I’m joined by Matt Goulding (@mdgoulding). He’s half of the founding team behind, an award winning travel journalism site and the publishing partner behind Explore Parts Unknown, the digital home for Bourdain’s hit CNN TV Show. 
Matt is a traveler, a food-lover and one of my favorite authors on both topics. We sat down today to talk about Matt's winding path, from cooking aboard boats in Patagonia to landing a job as food editor at Men’s Health and penning the prolific Eat This, Not That book series, to ultimately where he is today, turning travel, eating, drinking and writing into a living. 
Given the popularity of travel and food writing these days, I wanted to ask Matt what it is that sets Roads and Kingdoms apart and if in fact it is possible to still make money in publishing, an industry that on paper, seems to be struggling. 
This hour flew by and left me hungry for more. I think you’ll feel the same. Please enjoy this conversation with Matt Goulding.
