  • Charles Bethea

    Editorial Contributor

    Charles Bethea is, as his paternal grandmother boasts, a fifth-generation Atlantan. Raised in Ansley Park, he now lives in Buckhead, though he's always talking about moving somewhere cool, like Cabbagetown. He likes writing about lots of things, but especially sports, adventure, and death. His work has appeared in the New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Wired, and Outside magazine, about subjects ranging from Barack Obama's e-mail address to whether or not humans can outrun pronghorn antelope. In 2011, he won the City and Regional Magazine Association award for reporting for his piece on Final Exit Network and was nominated for a James Beard Award.
