Episode 28: Tours, Tourism, and Tourists

Episode 28 Cover .jpg

In this globetrotting episode, Alice and Buddy reflect on their experience as both residents of areas popular with tourists, and as tourists themselves. What do cities and theme parks have in common, and what are their distinct differences? What draws people to places—and what kinds of experiences do we value as tourists? When does tourism become exploitative, and does education serve as a way to mitigate it when it does?

Featuring an aside on the Experimental Prototype Tourism City of Tomorrow.
