Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast Being Globally Curious with Seth Kugel

Today’s guest is former Frugal Traveler columnist for the New York Times and author of Rediscovering Travel: A Guide for the Globally Curious, Seth Kugel. Seth is also known in some circles as the “Latino food expert”, can claim that he has written for the New Yorker but can’t claim that his work has appeared in the New Yorker, and is one of the funniest guys out there (just read his about page!).
