Minter Dialogue with Nathan Thornburgh
Nathan Thornburgh is co-founder and CEO of Roads & Kingdoms, an independent media company, with a refreshingly strong voice, that recently brought in Anthony Bourdain as its first strategic investor. Before R&K, Nathan spent almost a decade working at TIME Magazine as foreign correspondent and editor. In this conversation, we discuss the genesis and path of R&K, the state of journalism and the media today in the context of a Trump presidency, how to drive great content, and also get it distributed, as well as the best technologies to help create content!
