My guest today is Wade Davis, an author and anthropologist, who was until recently Explorer in Residence for the National Geographic Society and is currently Professor of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. Some of his books include “The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World,” “One River,” about which Sting wrote in his review “Read this book”, and most recently “Magdelena” which was described by the President of Colombia as essential reading for every adult Colombian.

Wade Davis is probably the most well known anthropologist in the world today. His work has received a huge boost recently from an article he wrote in The Rolling Stone Magazine about the decline of America brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, and we talk about the ongoing work he’s planning with The Rolling Stone going forward. As well as being a great writer, this interview illustrates just how compelling a storyteller Wade Davis is.
