My podcast on paella is now up! Listen to it here and sign up for the free recipe below. Adapted from the winning recipe of one of Spain’s greatest paella chefs, two-time Word Champion Julián Garcia. Trust me, you can taste the difference…
With my photo book of Spain finished, I’ve been wanting to take on a new project and I’m happy to announce that it’s already online: The Spanish Food podcast! Episode numero uno is ready to download on the iTunes store here. (If you don’t have iTunes, you can also listen on Soundcloud, or right here on my own site.)
It was an easy choice for me. I love podcasts and I love Spanish food. I’ve asked a lot of travellers to Spain how important food is to them and for most people it’s not just important, it’s everything–the central thing around which all other activities are planned!
And podcasts are such a great way to, well, consume content about Spain. You just download episodes to your phone or iPad and then you can listen whenever and wherever you want. Think of it as radio on demand. And there’s something special about listening to high-quality audio. It’s been called ‘the most visual medium’ for good reason. It transports you to another place, and the sounds and words excite the imagination like nothing else.
So please join me on this new adventure. If there’s anything in particular you would like to know more about, leave a comment below, I’d love to hear from you!
As of this moment, there are only 38 hours left in my Kickstarter project, a photo book on Spain, and the funding has reached 121 percent of my goal. Success! Thank you to all who have participated, and for those of you who haven’t yet, there’s still time! As a way of saying thank you to all the backers of the photo book, in addition to your name going in the credits as a photo editor, for a limited time I’ll be offering prints at super low prices. This is a one-time thing and these images–240 of them–will never be offered at this price again. Exclusive to backers of my photo book. Only a few hours left, so don’t miss out. They also make great gifts for the Spain lover in your life.
Thank you all once again. We did it together!
Un saludo muy cariñoso desde España,
I’m excited to announce that after eight years of working towards a photo book of Spain, the day has finally arrived! Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding website, launched in Spain today, and I wanted to be up there on the very first day. And I made it, so I’m very happy. But of course, it still has to be funded!
If you have a few moments, please take a look at the Kickstarter website to read about the project.
But first I want to say thank you for reading this blog and leaving comments. Getting your feedback and knowing that you enjoy seeing my images has been a huge source of inspiration for me. Also, seeing which images get more feedback than others has been very interesting. And it also gave me an idea. I’m not sure this has been done before, but I am going to let all my Kickstarter supporters choose which images go in the book. So instead of Spain by Mike Randolph, it’s more like a book by all of us, because everyone together will edit the book. I think it’s a pretty cool idea, I hope you do, too. It’s a small way I can thank you, and I hope you’ll participate. Check out the project for more details.
I also included many of your comments on this blog in the Kickstarter campaign. Sorry I couldn’t include you all! But a heartfelt thank you to everybody who has followed me over the last three years.
Wish me luck! And muchísimas gracias!
Last week a reader wrote to tell me that my photo of the horseback rider on the cold, wet mountain trail in Asturias was beautiful, she loved it (thank you again P), but that she wanted to see images of spring because it’s been a hard winter in Toronto, Canada, where she lives.
Since I know what that’s like, I get it. This is urgent. Continue Reading →
