29 minutes with Michael Palin

WNYC: Michael Palin helped change the face of comedy as a member of the Monty Python troupe. Since then he’s acted in films (Winning a British Academy Award for his performance in "A Fish Called Wanda"), written fiction, screenplays and children’s books. But he’s also made a name for himself as an explorer and adventurer, documenting his travels in a series of books and TV series, including Around The World in 80 Days, Pole to Pole, Full Circle, Hemingway Adventure and Sahara. I’m wondering how to get this peripatetic wanderer to stay in one place for several months, and what his survival kit would have to contain to keep him from going stir crazy.
