About

Jonathan FranklinJonathan Franklin is an investigative journalist who has reported for the New York Times, Boston Globe and the Guardian. Based in Santiago, Chile with his wife and 7 daughters he tends to live off the grid, especially when writing books.

Or magazine stories in Esquire, GQ, Playboy, and Men’s Journal as he chronicles the world of extreme survival, cocaine madmen, and football mayhem, as well as the standard interviews with hit men, kidnappers and cocaine submarine commanders.

Based in Santiago, Chile since 1996, Franklin wishes he had more time for undercover reporting, but most of his attention is spent keeping away the wrong kind  of son-in-law.

He also is now  a contributor to Retro Report, the innovative online documentary team. Franklin is rarely near a phone but can be reached at JonathanFranklin.com and followed @Franklinblog or visited in Santiago, Chile.
