World Footprints will take listeners on a journey that follows the North Star today. 


Many Americans are familiar with the slave revolts led by John Brown and Nat Turner, but the story of the greatest act of slave resistance in American history took place in 1811 and has remained largely untold, until now.  Daniel Rasmussen, acclaimed author of American Uprising: The Untold Story of America’s Largest Slave Revolt has pulled back the curtain on a long neglected period in New Orleans and he joins World Footprints to discuss his research and provide a glimpse into the history of slavery in the South and our nation’s path to Civil War.


Then, Bradley Myles, Executive Director and CEO of Polaris Project joins World Footprints.  Named after the North Star that guided slaves towards freedom along the Underground Railroad, Polaris Project has been providing a comprehensive approach to combating human trafficking and modern-day slavery since 2002.  Polaris Project has created the National Human Trafficking hotline in order to combat human trafficking. 


Finally, meet SEAsoned chef Victoria Allman.  Victoria joins World Footprints to offer a first-hand account of her journey as a yacht chef with her husband Patrick on his first assignment as Captain in her book SEAsoned: A Chef's Journey with Her Captain.  From their comical adventures with their inexperienced crew, and dysfunctional passengers to the violent storm, rapidly flooding engine room and great mouth-watering recipes, SEAsoned offers a great adventure & cookbook.
