    in Lifestyle

    The Transformed Traveler welcomes Expedia to discuss upcoming summer vacations.


    After months of  freezing temperatures, it’s FINALLY time to plan a warm weather getaway. And while Florida beaches and Caribbean cruises usually top the list for many travelers, our next guest has some alternative deals to get you to the water’s edge.


     Joining us live from Seattle with the inside scoop is Expedia Senior Editor and all-around travel expert Sarah Gavin.


    1.     Traditionally, Memorial Day weekend is one of the most popular weekends for travelers to hit the beach. Do you have any destination ideas to help us avoid the beach crowds?


    2.     What are some of the best options out there to get the most for your money this summer?  


    3.     Being smart and aware of your surroundings when traveling abroad is key. Do you have any tips for travelers to remain safe and sound?


    4.     Are there certain parts of Mexico that are better travel destinations for families versus couples looking for a quick getaway?

    Transformed Traveler welcomes Pauline Frommer

    in Lifestyle

    The Transformed Traveler discusses sensory travel with the incomparable Pauline Frommer. 


    The Frommer family has made a lasting mark on how we travel. From generation to generation, their family's focus on our enjoyment as travelers has literally changed the landscape of the $15 trillion travel industry. 


    In 1957, Arthur Frommer, a young corporal in the U.S. Army, wrote a travel guide for American GIs in Europe, and then produced a civilian version called Europe on $5 a Day.[3] The book ranked popular landmarks and sights in order of importance and included suggestions on how to travel around Europe on a budget. It was the first travel guide to show Americans that they could afford to travel in Europe. Arthur Frommer returned to the United States and began practicing law. During that time, he continued to write and also began to self-publish guidebooks to additional destinations, including New York, Mexico, Hawaii, Japan and the Caribbean. Call into 646-727-2255 and talk live with Pauline Frommer.

    Past Performance: Why Failed Ideas Succeed Later

    in Technology

    A decade and a half ago, WebVan, a same-day grocery delivery service, crashed and burned in what was probably the most spectacular failure of the original dot-com bust. Many lessons were learned from the Webvan story, but were they the right lessons? Today Amazon, Wal-Mart and others are scaling up same-day delivery while a company like Deliv might just be the next Uber.


    What happened? What changed?


    Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon explore some of the possible differences between the world of WebVan and our world by looking at some interesting current news items:


    Consider Pitching A “Virtual Startup” To Your Boss


    How successful people work less—and get more done


    Nest CEO Tony Fadell on the Future of the Internet


    In 2025, IKEA Thinks Your Kitchen Will Include Drones


    Wait, what does any of this have to do with same-day delivery? Tune in and explore.
