Episode 33: Rolf Potts, veteran travel writer.
"Instead of seeking out the stories, the stories sort of found me. I miss those days. I mean, I make more money from my writing now and I’m probably a better journalist. But having seven-day weeks to wander, month after month, for two years, was a great way to find real and spontaneous and human travel stories."
