Jeremy N. Smith and I chat about his story “Always, Only, At Least”, which he told live onstage at The Top Hat Lounge in Missoula, MT back in October 2014. The theme that night was “The Things We Carry”. We also talk about podcasting, some of the podcasts that he hosts and co-hosts, storytelling, and being in service of others. I caught up with Jeremy in August of 2020.
Finally arriving in London to be with his girlfriend after a long-distance relationship, Jeremy instead takes the train to Amsterdam for an extravagant formal dinner. Over the course of the next year, he cooks all over the world, memorizing portions of Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking by Marcella Hazan. Jeremy calls his story “Always, Only, At Least”.
Jeremy has written for many outlets including The Atlantic, Discover, Slate, and the New York Times.
He hosts the podcasts The Hacker Next Door, Stimulus & Response (with high-performance coach Damon Valentino), and You Must Know Everything (with his daughter Rasa). Jeremy speaks frequently before diverse national audiences
A graduate of Harvard College and the University of Montana, Jeremy lives in Missoula, Montana, with his wife and daughter.
