I’ve been looking forward to this visit with Scott for a while! He’s written six books, but it’s his latest best-sellar that I’m totally in love with! The best part? He’s had ADHD since he was a nano-sphere in his mother’s belly, and when I say “I take cold showers every day”, he doesn’t respond: “What the hell is wrong with you man??!” We talk about all of his journeys here today. I know your going to like this one, Enjoy!

A little bit more about Scott:  Investigative journalist and anthropologist Scott Carney (scottcarney.com) has worked in some of the most dangerous and unlikely corners of the world. His work blends narrative non-fiction with ethnography. Currently, he is the CEO of the tiny Denver-based media company Foxtopus Ink, a senior fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism and a 2016-17 Scripps Fellow at the Center for Environmental Journalism in Boulder, Colorado. His books include the New York Times best seller"What Doesn't Kill Us" as well as "The Red Market" and "The Enlightenment Trap." 

Carney was a contributing editor at Wired for five years and his writing also appears in Mother Jones, Men's Journal, Playboy, Foreign Policy, Discover, Outside and Fast Company. His work has been the subject of a variety of radio and television programs, including on NPR and National Geographic TV. In 2010, he won the Payne Award for Ethics in Journalism for his story "Meet the Parents," which tracked an international kidnapping-to-adoption ring. Carney has spent extensive time in South Asia and speaks Hindi.
