Episode 68: Rachel Levin On Making it “Big”

Rachel Levin

Rachel Levin & family.

Let’s say you’re on a summer hike and a grizzly crosses your path. Would you know what to do? Rachel Levin does. (Which is not to say she wants to encounter a bear!) Her new book, Look Big: And Other Tips for Surviving Animal Encounters, offers helpful advice in a humorous tone, as well as information and anecdotes about wildlife, ranging from mountain lions to moose to mice, all the way down to teeny-tiny mosquitos. This week, the effervescent Levin joins the GrottoPod to discuss her book as well as the ins and outs of reviewing restaurants in San Francisco, how she got a story in The New Yorker, and how to turn a philosophy major into a multi-faceted journalism career.
