Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Laurie Woolever.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with Laurie Woolever, who was an official collaborator and biographer of Anthony Bourdain.  In this far reaching interview, Woolever discusses:
