NEWS! Please check out my new podcast, DeSantisland on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or anywhere else you listen to podcasts. Thank you!   A couple years ago, I wrote a piece for The Wall Street Journal lamenting how companies I patronize have turned increasingly political and woke. Many speciously echoed Democratic Party claims that...

  Is Fox (News) Woke? Even asking this question seems ridiculous, right? After all, if you tune in to Fox during primetime, you’ll hear hosts like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham railing against wokeness. But since the 2020 election and Fox's premature Arizona call for Biden, there...

I sometimes post my work on Substack so please subscribe to The World According to Seminara. Thank you!...

Okay, folks, I've heard you! You asked me for a list of woke companies, and I gave. you one. Now many of you are asking for a list of companies that are not woke (or shall we say unawoke?) This is going to be a...

Chick-fil-A protesters I get a ton of mail about my complete list of woke companies, which I update frequently often in response to reader suggestions. Here are the questions I get the most: Do you have a list of non-woke corporations? The answer is yes but sadly this list is...

Here we go again folks! More woke corporations are preemptively pulling advertising from Twitter out of fear that Elon Musk will allow too much (choose one--Republicans: free speech, Democrats: hate speech) on the platform. Musk has indicated that he hasn't made any changes to the...

How many people do you know who lived life with no regrets, no compromises, and no fear? I know just one and he was my brother, Peter Seminara, who died at his home of natural causes at 58 in New Jersey on August 14. Peter...

Here are some Footsteps of Federer updates: So far, we already have great reviews and/or mentions from Federer biographer Rene Stauffer in Tages Anzeiger (syndicated to 11 Swiss newspapers, Swiss Info, Tennis, the Daily Telegraph, Newly Swissed, Tennis Now, Thrive Global, and Perfect Tennis. I...

I had high expectations for Chris Clarey’s new Federer biography because I’m a huge Federer fan and because Chris has done a fine job of covering tennis for NYT for many years. But sadly this book misses the mark on many fronts and I’m shocked...

My recent interview with Roger Federer is now out on The New York Times website! Big thanks to Switzerland Tourism and The New York Times for giving me the opportunity to interview my favorite athlete of all time, a man who is not only a...

WARNING: There may be some spoilers below depending on how much or little you’ve already read about William Baekeland and my book, Mad Travelers. When I first heard that HBO was making a film about William Baekeland—a wanderlust-stricken Brit accused of being a con man by...

I’ve heard authors liken publishing a book to giving birth. Maybe, but I pulled all-nighters when my sons were born and I do not plan to do that tonight even though my new book, Footsteps of Federer, comes out tomorrow, March 2. When I traveled...

I’ve been busy covering tennis for the Atptour.com website lately and have been remiss in reporting some exciting news I received a few weeks ago. My publisher inked a deal with Tantor Audio to release an audiobook edition of my forthcoming book, Footsteps of Federer:...

It was 63 degrees this morning in St. Petersburg, Florida, but it felt like 43 to my soft ass. I've only been living in Florida for just over a year and this is my first time living in the Tropics—save for a three month stint...

I'm excited to announce that I'm doing at least a pair of Zoom talks to discuss my new book, Mad Travelers: A Tale of Wanderlust, Greed & the Quest to Reach the Ends of the Earth, comes out. The first event, on June 1...

Driving around town with an unwanted set of snow tires in my trunk, I felt like a thief who had just pulled off a jewelry heist and needed to sell his hot merch. Quickly. Bend is the only place I’ve ever lived in where snow...

Bend is, in the words of a guy I recently met, a “frickin’ magical place.” Many of us have moved to this High Desert playground for its myriad of recreational opportunities—hiking, cycling, tubing, fishing, you name it, we got it. And so, we take this...

For most of the year, it’s just too damn early to get up and out in time to get good sunrise photos. But the winter is a different story. While in Vancouver, B.C. last week, I noticed on my phone that sunrise wasn’t until around...

The truly magisterial thing about life is that, when you wake up each morning, you can never be completely certain about what the day has in store for you. This applies to President Obama, Pope Francis, a weird guy I hired to rake leaves at...
