Brendan Spiegel

Co-Founder & Editorial Director

A New York City native, Brendan got his start in journalism as a political reporter and editor at Congressional Quarterly in Washington, D.C. His musings on food, travel, politics, news and humans have appeared frequently in The New York Times, as well as The Washington Post, Wired, New York magazine, Travel + Leisure and many other publications. But the only thing that really impresses most people he meets is that when he was 12 he appeared on an episode of PBS’ “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?” and caught Carmen in Africa.
