Listen to Jon Krakauer Discuss the 25th Anniversary of ‘Into the Wild’
I’ve never before listened to the Press Box podcast, which is part of The Ringer, the Bill Simmons-led sports and culture media mini-empire. But this latest episode, in which the hosts Bryan Curtis and David Shoemaker interview Jon Krakauer for the 25th anniversary of Into the Wild, and writing in general is fascinating.
The gist: Krakauer loved writing that book, is pretty sick of book writing in general, and wants to spend far more time having his own adventures rather than writing about other people’s adventures.
Huh. Can’t imagine what that must feel like.
The podcast is available, here.
