How Not to Avoid Jet Lag & other tales of travel madness
Host Ken Jones talks with travel writer Joshua Samuel Brown, author of the new book How Not to Avoid Jet Lag & other tales of travel madness. Joshua spent the better part of the first decade of the 21st century roaming around East Asia and writing for a variety of publications, before writing his first book of short stories Vignettes of Taiwan. This book helped land him steady work with Lonely Planet, on whose behalf he journeyed for several years through Asia and Central American before, according to Joshua, going slightly mad and deciding to settle down in Portland, Oregon. Joshua is a two-time recipient of the Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism fellowship at the University of Southern California. He also writes and produces the radio comedy show Puppet Radio Theater on KBOO.
