Podcast #174 – Larry Rohter

This week we interview journalist Larry Rohter, author of the biography about a brilliant Brazilian explorer. Rohter’s Into the Amazon: The Life of Cândido Rondon, Trailblazing Explorer, Scientist, Statesman, and Conservationist, was published by W. W. Norton and Company in May 2023. Rohter served as the Rio de Janeiro bureau chief for the New York Times from 1998 to 2008, and he held the same role at Newsweek from 1977 to 1982. He divides his time between the United States and Brazil. Larry Rohter was interviewed by fellow biographer and BIO member Kevin McGruder.
