This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show is broadcasting from the Lake Austin Spa Resort in Austin, Texas. Joining Peter will be George Hobica, founder of airfarewatchdog.com, who discusses the unintentional repercussions of the president’s executive order travel ban. With fewer people traveling now, does that mean the airlines are practically giving seats away? Joe Brancatelli, Business Travel Columnist of Joesentme.com, details how decreasing airfares may be creating a modern golden age for leisure travelers. Michael Barnes, Columnist for the Austin American-Statesman, is an authority on all things Austin and reports on the city’s cutting edge music and culture. But let’s not forget eating in Austin: Patricia Sharpe, food editor at Texas Monthly, reports on the most competitive sport in Texas: barbecue. Then it’s over to France with Craig Carlson, an American expat living in Paris and Author of Pancakes in Paris. He has a mouthful to tell Peter about opening his now-iconic American diner in Paris. Trisha Shirey, Director of Flora and Fauna at Lake Austin Resort (and gardener extraordinaire), talks about the property’s surprisingly varied flora and wildlife and the hotel’s role in the farm-to-table cuisine of the resort. Kathy Valentine, Musician, Composer, and Writer, talks about her past with the GoGos, her present with The Bluebonnets, and Austin’s stellar music scene. There’s all of that and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Lake Austin Resort Spa in Austin, Texas.
