We’re in Grass Valley, California with travel writer/photographers Michael Hodgson and Therese Iknoian of HI Travel Tales. They’ve been to all 50 states, and 45 countries on all 7 continents. Both are award-winning journalists—there’s even a Pulitzer—and they transformed their careers from print to digital and are loving life. He was once a consultant, but gave it up because he couldn’t hold back—an apt metaphor for their lives together: they can’t do anything just halfway. The challenge of loving your work, being good at it and driven to do it, is that it becomes hard to not work. We also talk about bad places to take phone calls. And what’s it like being “old farts with ethics?” (They’re not that old, frankly.)
