Episode #40 – A Sneak Peak at Discovery Park of America
The nation’s newest 100,000 square foot science museum, history center, aquarium, and children’s activity park sits in the most unusual place – over 100 miles from the nearest metropolitan area. This week, we talk to Mary Nita Bondurant of the brand-new Discovery Park of America. She’ll be telling us why the small town of Union City, Tennessee, was chosen for such an ambitious educational project. We’ll get a sneak peak into the center, and we’ll find out what’s in store for visitors over the next few months.
In our Along the Way… segment, we return to the Lincoln Highway, this time to Eastern Ohio. This 120-mile stretch of road has plenty of secrets waiting to be told and something for roadtrippers of all ages.
In our comedy segment On the Lighter Side, Silvio Sandoval of the Rio de Janeiro Tourism Ministry calls in and has a little trouble recommending anything specific to listeners, so resorts to insulting the host.
It’s our 40th episode, so join us for an all-new episode of Road Trip Radio!
