SORT BY Relevancy
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?
This show will touch on a topic related to Health and Wellness Travel. Medical tourism is one of the fastest growing trends in travel. With the rising cost of healthcare, and the American population aging, baby boomers retiring, Medical Tourism is a hot topic.
Although it's been around for many years we'll talk about the definition of Medical tourism. The discussion will become lively as we talk about the top destinations for certain procedures, what procedures people are traveling to have done, the process, and the risks.
There is so much to discuss about this interesting topic including ethical issues and what questions to ask prospective physicians.
Don't miss this show if you have ever thought about going across the borders, the ocean, or even state lines to seek medical help. Listen so you can make the right decision!
Did you know you can make payments on your next vacation?
We will discuss travel trends of the week, travel news, and of course Shellda's Fun Facts.
Call into the station to tell us about your experiences with medical travel.

Joe Harkins, Associate Editor of the Medical Tourism Association Journal, joins Mike and Joyce to talk about the growth of Medical tourism — going outside your home country for health care.
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.

Then we’ll talk about the role that tourism plays in fostering peace with Lou D’Amore, Founder and President of the International Institute for Peace through Tourism. Finally, Casey Wohl, the “Getaway Girl,” stops by to share a few great destination ideas for a girlfriends’ getaway and the guys who are seeking a “mancation.”

Award winning writer and journalist, and author of Overbooked: The Exploding Business of travel and Tourism, Elizabeth Becker describes both the global importance of the travel and tourism business, but also the challenges and problems created by that industry. Elizabeth Becker points out how travel and tourism is possibly the largest, yet most ignored industry in the world.. Elizabeth Becker provides information on how the indstry is still not even considered a business by many, resulting in it not being taken seriously by governments, writers, and travelers themselves. Elizabeth points out the three major areas of tourism, in the form of cultural, consumer, and nature destinations. She also discusses the new gigantic tourist market in China, as well as the old tourist giant USA. In an industry where the challenges include environmental and building deterioration, worker exploitation, and government failures, this is an industry that needs a closer examination. Elizabeth Becker pulls back the curtain on the enormous global travel and tourism industry.
