You don’t need to be a writer to enjoy this inspiring conversation with New York Times best-selling author and celebrated advice columnist, Cheryl Strayed. In this episode of the Longform podcast, Cheryl talks with host Max Linsky about perseverance, luck, and the perfect storm of personal challenges and once-in-a lifetime opportunities that precipitated her most popular book, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Coast Trail. It’s a fascinating conversation, full of candor, humor and inspiration. Recommended listening for long car rides– this one is 2 hours long, but I wouldn’t cut a minute.

Longform is a weekly conversation with non-fiction writers on how they tell stories.
