My second worldwide-television debut happened first in India, and I couldn’t help but wonder, Had anyone watched me on TV through the window of an electronics store? If so, I wish I could tell them that I was watching them back (Hello from California!). What they saw: Madagascar, through my eyes. Have a look.
No script, no hair, no makeup, no wardrobe—Lonely Planet: Roads Less Travelled turns conventional travel-television on its head. My only directive as host was to be my “weird, wacky, unfiltered San Francisco self.” What else could I be? To those who write me and ask, How can I get your job? I say this: Leading an authentic life pays off. The show is airing now on National Geographic Channels International, in 40 countries around the globe.
