A.J. Jacobs is always a great guest because he is always getting himself into situations that most people would want to avoid.

You know, like that year he spend literally following the life instructions found in the Bible.

Or when he turned himself into a lab rat trying out all sorts of ways to get healthy.

And that time he outsourced his family obligations and job responsibilities as a writer for Esquire magazine… to India.

All this and he’s a pretty terrific writer.

JULIE JACOBS podcast excerpt: “When he wrote ‘Drop Dead Healthy,’ I had to do a juice fast.”

A.J. JACOBS podcast excerpt: “Oh, she did not do well. It was a three-day fast; she made it 2-1/2 hours.”

JULIE JACOBS podcast excerpt: “It’s not my strength. I have other strengths, like putting up with A.J.”

This time around, A.J. committed himself to what might be the world’s largest genealogy project, the Global Family Reunion. Like all A.J. Jacobs’ book ideas, it began small – hey look, I’m a distant cousin of President George H.W. Bush! – and it went somewhat haywire when he discovered he was also cousins with his wife of 15 years, Julie.

And that was just the beginning.

Julie will join us midway to offer her perspective on husband/cousin A.J.’s latest endeavor.

A.J.’s latest book is It’s All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World’s Family Tree. It truly goes all over the map!
