That sucks!!! Really enjoyed his shows in the past. I think he met with Uncle Ted once to eat BBQ and shoot guns which he said was "curiously fun".

Suicide has become the #10 cause of death in the US and needs to be addressed.

I met him here in Houston a couple of years ago at a book signing. I am not a celebrity type of person but i thought it was cool to meet him. Mainly because i thought it would be cool to travel the world and do what he did.

That really sucks.

Wasn't a fan of him interjecting politics as of recent in to the shows but overall his writing and narration for his shows was excellent. Probably has experienced the entire world in terms of food, drink and culture. Maybe he had just seen it all and there was nothing left for him to want to stay.

I just started to listen to some of Joe Rogan's podcast yesterday, and he always is talking about him. Very strange to here he took his own life today because I had never heard of him before yesterday.

Sad. I was at a Vetnamese restaurant on Wednesday night that had been on Anthony's show a few years ago. The owner of the restaurant told us Anthony was planning a new show at his restaurant in the future and he would let us know so we could be there when it was filmed.

I liked how his shows evolved from being more about cultures and less about food, and that is coming from a "foodie". I learned a lot about other cultures around the world from his shows. I thought his recent show on Virginia was great.

Never heard of the guy, just looking for a basic definition of a highly depressive person to share and help answer the post I was replying too. Having an expertise in this narrowed field I can assure you the 4 main symptoms outlined in that article are accurate descriptors.

Very sad news. I really liked everything he was a part of on TV and writings. He did have a way of narrating that I found interesting and would keep you interested and intrigued about what was coming next. Each show was an insight into the local culture from the past to the present. He had a good show in Cuba.

He did have some addictions in the past and I thought he had beaten them. He definitely knew his food and it could just be a hole in the wall place but he was one to seek it out.

He will be missed.

Please no one listen to this ignorance... People are on those meds because there is a problem. The meds did not cause the problem. The meds give some people what they need go get past the demons they are fighting. People blaming the meds for suicide, and school shootings need to educate themselves.
