Kim Day, CEO of Denver International Airport, discusses all things DIA. As the last new major airport built in the United States (and the sixth-busiest in the nation), it’s almost its own city with 35,000 employees. Kim has pushed to make the airport an experience unto itself with healthier food, cleaner restrooms, better shopping, and the fastest airport WiFi in the country.

John Ekeberg, Executive Director of the Broadway division at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, laughs about Denver’s outdated reputation as a flyover state. The Performing Arts complex alone is home to eight different theaters and hosts ten tour launches, making it a fantastic hub of arts and activity.

Dana Crawford, award-winning preservationist and Denver historian, explains Denver’s push toward preserving its unique history, and how this has made it a destination city and a national trendsetter.

Shauna Lott, owner of the Long I Pie Shop, started selling her confections out of an airstream trailer. She has recently been voted “Best Pie in Denver,” and talks to Peter about the journey, her favorite flavors, and her return to the road with her sweet treats.

Troy Guard, Executive Chef and Owner of eight Denver restaurants (and former James Beard Award Nominee), spills the secret of staying relevant in a city that saw 220 restaurants open last year alone. He is taking the industry back to basics, focusing on incredible, locally-sourced produce, and providing exceptional care for his guests.
