Join us for this week’s news from the roadtripper’s perspective on This Week in Travel. Lots of travel news this week, including a United Airlines ticket agent that was beaten ruthlessly by a crazed passenger, as well as an economical car (less than $7000) that goes on sale in 2015 that claims to get 84 miles per gallon.

Jeremy opens up The Travel Archive to listen to a few classic commercials from the golden age of radio, and fictional caller J. Howard Carter gets what he deserves in our comedy segment On the Lighter Side.
