This Week's Guests: Spud Hilton, travel editor of The San Francisco Chronicle

Topics Discussed This Week:

Picks of the Week: Spud Hilton's Bio: Spud Hilton is Travel Editor of The San Francisco Chronicle and writer for the section's blog, Bad Latitude. He is a 20-year journalist and a late-blooming traveler who, in 9 years with the Travel section has written about, reported on and been hopelessly lost on five continents. His attempts to defy the expectations of places -- from Havana's back alleys to Genoa's cathedrals to the floor of a hippie bus in Modesto -- have earned three Lowell Thomas Awards. His stories have appeared in more than 60 newspapers in North America, several of which are still publishing. He lives with his wife, Ann, in San Francisco and plays cornet in an early New Orleans-style jazz band.
