This week, we talk to writer David Hochman. He's a luminary in the freelancing world, in part because of his success, in part because of his work, and in part because he created a community forum, Upod, which allows freelancers to connect and seek help from other independent creators. We chat about Donald Trump, travel writing, playing the mandolin, his experience in the Omo Valley and his Ted Talk. Throughout, he shares how he approaches independent writing, turning it from a side-gig into a career.
Stories mentioned in the chat:
- The Last Frontier: Ethiopia's Remote Omo Valley
- Kona to Kathmandu: What Is It Like to Fly Around the World in a Private Jet?
- Life Lessons from Bluegrass Camp
- Playboy Interview: Donald Trump
- Gary Oldman
