Teri Talking with Tim Cahill, Part 1

A conversation with the wicked smart, kind, and funny Godfather of Travel Writing

He's been called America’s best known (and funniest) adventure travel writer, a Working-Class Hero, The Godfather of Travel Writing, the Wise Guy of Travel Lit Lite, an apostle of irreverence, and a Mishap Maestro. I just call him Tim. Freaking. Cahill. Tim's why many of us write about travel.

In Part 1, Tim talks about law school, new journalism, pissing off a chef at the Mark Hopkins, his foray into investigative journalism and spending "3 years in the sewer" of John Wayne Gacy's mind, his partner, Nancy Kessler, and a bunch of other stuff.

Tune in for a great conversation with the man who took a certain kind of story telling out of the realm of men's true adventure magazines and into literature.

Teri's Doing It!
Teri's Doing It! Podcast
A friend once told me, "Teri, you'll never meet anyone who doesn't know at least one thing you don't." It's true. Teri's Doing It! podcasts feature inspiring people from whom I've learned a lot. I hope the stories they tell do the same for you.
I'm a travel writer and podcaster who has realized that time is finite and I'm getting closer to the end than the beginning. Because I don't want to go out with a long, undone to-do list, I'm doing things these days I always wanted to do but hadn't made time for.
Join me. Hear from inspiring people who aren't letting grass grow under their feet no matter their age, who have found their passion and pursue it with all their hearts. And then go out and mark things off your to-do list.
Carpe diem! What have you got to lose?
