Jeju Island welcomes more than a million tourists to its beaches, resorts and UNESCO Natural World Heritage sites every month. The number has grown dramatically every year, from 5 million in 2005 to more than 12 million last year, driven by the economic confidence of a powerful domestic middle class and the package tours of China's nouveaux riche. The effect of the increase in visitors on the environmental and social stability of this island of 500,000 is dramatic and ongoing. Ann Bush is a writer, teacher and activist from Berkley, California. Her work for The Jeju Weekly magazine has brought an articulate and insightful outsider’s take on the art, history and culture of the island. In this interview she discusses the value and dangers of tourism's economic benefits and the sanctity of cultural solidarity in the face of massive change.

In light of the recent Spaceship 2 disaster, hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss the past and future of space toursim. The discovery of the oldest map of the cosmos is a reminder that we have been pursuing the great Out There for a very long time. Some are now asking whether space tourism can survive. Have we reached the end, or have we even made it to the beginning yet?
PLUS: Who is really going to steal your job? (Maybe not a robot.)
And on a completely unrelated topic (or is it?) can you ever really know an extraterrestrial?
Bonus topic, time permitting: Do we need more big data hype?

Nearly a million Americans went outside the country for necessary health care in 2013. Employers who provide health care for their employees are taking advantage of medical tourism to save money. One employer has saved $10 million while providing quality health care for their employees.
ABC’s Nightline reported on the economic advantages of medical tourism. http://www.medicaltourismcongress.com/blog/us-companies-consider-medical-tourism/
Joe speaks with Joyce and Mike about what people go outside the U.S. or other countries, and what destinations provide the best care.
