Travel with Rick Steves Radio Recording Sessions
Join us this Tuesday, November 19 to chat with Rick and his guests during a quick and exciting line up of guest interviews we're recording for future episodes of Travel with Rick Steves.
A few years ago, one of our listeners recommended on the show that we read Graham Robb's entertaining account of how France attempted to become a unified nation in the 19th century. This Tuesday, Rick meets Graham Robb in a recording session for Travel with Rick Steves. It's your chance to ask the author about his groundbreaking works on France and his latest book that documents the forgotten achievements of the Celtic world before the Romans invaded.
Rick also checks in with actress Madhur Jaffrey about her dual Indian and British identity and her observations on how curry has become a mainstay among the comfort foods of Britain. Rick also chats with Amanda Renshaw about an impressive art book that explores art-specific sites in the Americas. We've also rescheduled our segments with BBC foreign correspondent Nick Bryant. He joins us Tuesday to share his colorful experiences covering the world's hot spots and war zones, and what it's been like as an English journalist based abroad in India and, now, the USA.
Here's how you can send us a question or comment for our guests, and get one of Rick's guidebooks sent to you as our thanks for participating:
1. Select a session below to view details about the guest and interview. Add your thoughts, questions and phone number — before the show is scheduled to be taped!
Note: We always prefer if you can supply us with a "landline" number instead of a cell phone.
2. Be ready to get a phone call from us during that topic's scheduled interview time. (We intend to include as many callers as possible during each interview segment to contribute to the discussion topic. However, submitting a question or comment does not guarantee that we'll contact you to participate for each interview you select.)
3. If you have a question but will be unavailable for a call during the interview time, please note that Rick often reads email questions on the air. Simply let us know in your posting that you won't be available by phone at the time of the interview. However, we'll need to have been able to reach you by phone during the interview session(s) for you to get a free Rick Steves guidebook. We'll contact you by email after we've concluded our recording sessions to find out which guidebook you'd like us to send you.
4. Whether or not you want to participate, you can use the schedule below to listen to a live webcast of the interviews direct from the studio!
5. To hear the finished show after it's been produced, visit the radio section of our website, which links to a podcast of each weekly radio show when it's released. The radio section also includes a list of local airtimes on hundreds of radio stations across the US, and several in Canada, and on AFN radio at US military bases around the world.
Note: Start times and lengths of segments are approximate, and the schedule may be subject to change. Finished segments will appear on weekly "Travel with Rick Steves" programs airing and podcasting in the months ahead.
