From exploring New Orleans’ culture with James Carville to Maya Angelou’s journey from a San Francisco streetcar operator to celebrated poet and novelist, World Footprints brings unique and thoughtful conversations about the places and people who inspire exploration of our planet, transformative travel and positive life choices. Hosts Tonya and Ian Fitzpatrick, Esqs.—three-time North American Travel Journalists’ Association award winners for excellence in travel broadcasting—will change the way you view travel, culture and the environment through the voices of celebrities and newsmakers. As a leading voice in socially responsible travel and lifestyle, World Footprints explores diverse topics such as modern slavery, film, music, politics, sustainability and travel intelligence as we travel the planet together. On World Footprints you’re just as likely to hear from conservationists such as Jack Hanna and Bobby Kennedy, Jr. as you are from survivors of human trafficking, distinguished historians, Oscar-nominated film directors and human rights advocates. You’re also likely to find World Footprints behind the wheel of a race car, in the field digging for dinosaur bones, at White House events and Olympic Games. If you want a travel and lifestyle show that inspires, tune into World Footprints. Explore our planet with Tonya and Ian. It’s radio that moves humanity.
