Today on World Footprints we’ll enjoy some Wayward and hair-raising travel experiences with a true Vagabond and we’ll look at a new travel service that has gone to the dogs.
First, author and Matador Network editor Tom Gates will give us a “sample” (no pun) of a few of his personal eyebrow-raising travel stories in his new book Wayward: Fetching Tales from a Year on the Road. Tom will share how Anthony Bourdain is responsible for his sampling of “mans best friend” and why he ended up in the pokey at Heathrow International Airport. Those stories are just a few of what we’ll hear.
Next you’ll meet Mike Richard, founding editor of the popular website Vagabondish.com—a travel portal for the independent traveler and free spirit. Mike absconded from corporate America to pursue his passion for travel and to help others travel wisely.
Finally, Aaron Hirschorn’s career has gone to the dogs—literally. Aaron and his wife Karine created a new service, DogVacay.com that provides travelers with host homes that will care for their dogs while traveling.
World Footprints goes inside “The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth”—the Calgary Stampede. Cowboy up and hitch your horse to a chuck wagon as the Stampede’s Keith Rutherford shares the heritage a signature event, the chuck wagon race. Then meet the young Canadians who charm their way into the hearts of all during the Stampede evening extravaganzas. They will share what it takes to be a member of this Broadway style glee club. Finally, World Footprints will visit the Siksika Nation, east of Calgary on the Blackfoot Reservation. Tribal elder, Bernard Bear Shirt, shares the history of the Tribe through stories and music and dance.
World Footprints will take you on a journey as we explore the artifacts from America’s greatest family battles, discover a catalyst for promoting Latin American arts and culture, and take a sip of sustainable California wines (yum!).
The home of Randall McCoy, the patriarch of the famed McCoy family, and the site of the deadly 1888 New Year’s Day showdown between the Hatfields and McCoys has been unearthed by National Geographic “Diggers” Tim “Ringmaster” Saylor and “King” George Wyatt. Tim “Ringy” stops by to share their historic discoveries.
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is the leading source of development financing for Latin American and the Caribbean. IDB has an extensive and dynamic cultural education outreach program and Ivan Duque Marquez, Culture, Creativity and Solidarity Division Chief, joins us to talk about the unique role culture plays in Latin America’s economic development.
Sustainability has taken hold in the wine industry. One of the leaders in the vanguard is Allison Jordan, Executive Director of the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance, a non-profit that promotes environmental and social responsibility in the industry. Cheers!
World Footprints travels to the island of St. Vincent to explore ancient places and the history of a proud people few know anything about. Our first stop is to the Botanical Gardens of St. Vincent, the oldest such garden of its type in the Western Hemisphere, and we are joined by historian Dr. Edgar Adams for a look into some of the events and experiences that have defined his life and the history of St. Vincent.
Then we travel to Fort Charlotte where we meet Augustine Sutherland, a decendant of one of St. Vincent's indigeneous ethnic groups, the Garafuna. Fort Charlotte was built by the British (1793-1806), not to defend against a naval attack but as an inland defense against attacks from the Garafuna, Kalinago and the French. This in evidenced by the fact that the cannons of Fort Charlotte face inland. Augustine shares some of the tragic history his ancestors faced here and some of the challenges he faced growing up as a Garafuna on St. Vincent.
Ever seen the film, Horrible Bosses, the dark-humored film about three employees who plot together to plan the demise of their abusive and overbearing bosses?
While the film is a farfetched depiction, some would say that the angst of the characters who are the employees is an unfortunate part of life in the working world. But should that have to be the case? Is it possible for a leader, whether they be an employer, teacher, pastor, or even the head of household to be respected without stooping to base tactics?
Yes! It is possible to lead others with a heart of compassion and still get great results. If you're a leader, this is a half-hour that you want to take time for.
