31 Jul 2012 – Travel around the globe with World Footprints as we go to Namibia, the Mediterranean and Detroit.
First stop…Namibia with Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund. Since 1990, Dr. Marker has pioneered new ideas in cheetah conservation and has formed cooperative alliances on behalf of the cheetah that have never before been possible. She is recognized around the world as one of the leading experts on cheetahs, both in the wild and in captivity.
Then we’ll journey to the Mediterranean with travel author and TV host Rick Steves. Rick is on a mission: to help make European travel accessible and meaningful for Americans. Rick just returned from two Mediterranean Cruises and he joins us to talk about his newest guide book, Mediterranean Cruise Ports, and the art of travel.
Finally, Detroit is a city that has not been portrayed favorably in the media (except on World Footprints) so we were surprised to meet someone who left his Fortune 500 employer to move to Detroit for the purpose of showing the city in a different light. Philip Lauri is the Founder and Director of Detroit Lives! and he join us to share why Detroit is a vibrant place to live and discover.
