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.

Upcoming Broadcasts

In what would become one of her final interviews, World Footprints enjoyed a intimate chat with "Global Renaissance Woman" Dr. Maya Angelou. Dr. Angelou shared some wisdom, insights and stories from her incredible life's journey, including the transitional relationship with her mother Vivian Baxter. Her mother shared messages of courage, hope, forgiveness and unlimited possibilities and those messages are what Dr. Angelou attributed to many of her life's blessings. Dr. Angelou joined us to talk about her last book "Mom & Me & Mom" and she generously offered nuggets of wisdom for everyone. Dr. Angelou's time with us was the most memorable interaction we've ever experienced and we greatly miss her presence. We continue along the heart's path and take a short trip to a city that is near and dear to us--Detroit, where we share the city's great comeback and one of the greatest reinvention stories in America. Finally we chat with a dear friend, artist Michele Wood - a Coretta Scott King award-winning illustrator whose work is displayed in her book "I See the Rhythm of Gospel"
