This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from San Juan Water & Beach Club Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Joining Peter Greenberg on the show will be Nuria Sebazco, TV Reporter for Telemundo Puerto Rico, with a front line report on the Zika virus and its impact on tourism. Also, Roger Dow, President and CEO of U.S. Travel Association, drops by to talk about the perception versus reality with the Zika virus and the fears associated with it, along with an update on the Visa Waiver Program. Professor Luis Agrait, History Department Chair at The University Puerto Rico, stops by to talk about diversity in Puerto Rico and the blending of cultures, as well as the food that’s come from that. Andy Rivera, Founder of the Puerto Rico Historic Building Drawings Society, discusses the volunteer base of the program, and gives insight into the many special and little known tours the program offers. Carolyn Spencer Brown, Editor-in-Chief of Cruise Critic, reports to me about the largest cruise ship ever built and the current advancements in the cruise industry. Chef Wilo Benet, Chef and Owner of Pikayo, a restaurant spanning 27 years, explains what distinguishes Puerto Rican cuisine from other flavors—detailing why flavorful doesn’t necessarily mean outrageously spicy. Finally, Celina Nogueras Cuevas, writer, cultural creator, and trend forecaster, talks about street art and the local scene of entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico, and explains the rise of street art and how the Puerto Rican culture has embraced this by bringing in artists from around the world for commissioned work on buildings. There’s all of this and much more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
