ABOUT THIS EPISODE
This week’s Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from the Minneapolis Saint Paul International Airport. Joining the show is Jayne Haugen Olson, Editor in Chief at Mpls. St. Paul Magazine, on the strength of the Twin Cities and the airport that supports them, and the 20 Fortune 500 companies that call Minneapolis/St Paul home. She’ll also have a report on the explosion in the art and cultural scene. And she’ll explain the background to the creative impact of weather: that there are so many patents in Minnesota because people didn’t have anything else to do in the winter but be in their basement tinkering. Executive Director and CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission Brian Ryks, who details why MSP has been voted the number one airport in the country for three years in a row. James Lileks, from the Star Tribune, shares the airport’s history — it was a speedway that went bust, (but it was decided to build an airport there because the space already had relatively straight lines). And MSP firefighter Natalie Forst, on why her team has the highest cardiac arrest save rate in the country. There’s all this and more as Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from the Minneapolis Saint Paul International Airport.
