ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Anthony Bourdain’s life as told by 91 people that knew him best. On this Hearsay Culture Radio newsmaker interview, Dave Levine is joined by Laurie Woolever to discuss her 2021 book, Bourdain, The Definitive Oral Biography. Woolever traveled the world with Anthony Bourdain as his road manager, co-editor, and “lieutenant”, and subsequently co-authored a book with him, as well as his first biography after his untimely passing. Bourdain’s death was unexpected, but led to 91 interviews with people who knew him best, to learn more about his thoughts, experiences, and outlooks. Over the course of a wide-ranging discussion, this October 2021 interview gives Hearsay Culture Radio listeners a rare window into the excruciating process of writing a book about a man whose life was an open book to those who knew him, and a significant mystery to his many fans. Woolever’s thoughtfulness, attention to finding the true person behind the public persona, and ability to take on this incredibly sad and personal project, makes this discussion a highlight of Hearsay Culture Network’s offerings in recent years. “He wouldn’t have been who he was if he didn’t live life to a thousand percent.” -Laurie Woolever
