Episode 6: Southern Storytellers - Les Thomas

by Tanner Latham

Les Thomas wrote his way across the South. His travel writing, for Texas newspapers,  Southern Living magazine and beyond, has spanned over 45 years. He's a giant of a man with an innate curiosity.  

"I've always liked to ask questions," he says. "That's been part of my life, I guess. I've probably asked way too many beyond patience, but I don't know how you find out things unless you ask." 

This episode is the first in a series called Southern Storytellers. 


Les used a typewriter his whole career. With that came a love for head phones .
