Leaving home is what writer Ted Conover does for a living. He's written books and articles about his experiences riding the rails as a hobo, crossing the border illegally with undocumented Mexicans, serving as a maximum-security prison guard at Sing-Sing. He calls it "participatory journalism", but whatever your name for it, the idea is to travel light, without preconceptions, and to travel deep into the heart of another person's life. Listen in as we talk with Ted about his travel experiences.
