Here’s a lesson in how not to pitch your business to investors.

Or, maybe, exactly how to pitch your business to investors.

Anthony Bourdain — of all those travel and eating shows that aren’t really about eating at all — has invested in food and travel website Roads & Kingdoms.

How, you might fairly ask, did someone as busy as Bourdain come to be an investor? Because one of the founders emailed him after drinking many glasses of sake.

Kids, don’t try this at home.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
