This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from Boulder, Colorado and the studios at KGNU. Boulder is about to host the Jaipur Literature Festival which will be held September 23rd through 25th. Joining Peter Greenberg will be festival director Jessie Friedman, who talks about the original Jaipur Literature Festival founded in India (it starts September 23 in Boulder). Kathy Beeck, Founder and Director of the Boulder International Film Festival, details what makes the film festival critically renowned, including its rigorous selection process that screens more than 1,000 film submissions each year. Speaking of great events, John D. Griffin, Faculty Director of Boulder’s legendary Conference on World Affairs, talks about the history of the Conference, founded back in 1948, now held at the University of Colorado Boulder every April. The week-long event attracts star speakers from around the world, and nearly 70,000 people show up. The best deal: admission is free. Jane Reynolds, Senior Editor of Oyster.com, reports on the site’s photo fake outs, how Oyster takes the brochure pictures posted by hotels and resorts on their websites and then sends its own photographers to take undoctored photos. The results are often frightening. Hugo Martin, Business Writer for The Los Angeles Times, explains how diminishing air service to smaller communities has helped grow the intercity bus industry. Janice Wald Henderson, culinary travel expert, joins Peter with a report on the coming boom in more sophisticated American river cruises. Nancy Geyer, Executive Director & CEO Boulder History Museum, tells some great stories of the 72 year-old museum, and how it celebrates Native American ties to the city, as well as more contemporary exhibits, including “from tea to tofu,” and an upcoming marijuana history retrospective. Bobby Stuckey, Master Sommelier and Owner of Frasca Food and Wine, describes his experience with Colorado wine makers. Yes, they make wine in Colorado, and some of the major challenges in the process. There’s all this and more, as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the studios of KGNU in Boulder, Colorado.
