Canadian travel humorist Kirsten Koza joins us to talk about her recent travels in Kazakhstan, where she was on a quest to discover “ghost ships,” rusting in the desert where the Aral Sea used to exist. She also tells us about naked wrestling on horses in Kyrgyzstan. In part two of the program, Kirsten shares anecdotes from her hilarious travel memoir, Lost in Moscow: A Brat in the USSR, about her 1977 experience at a Young Communist League summer camp in the Soviet Union when she was 11 years old. We also listen to a tune from one of Kazakhstan’s hottest boy bands and learn about Boris Grebenshikov, one of the founding fathers of Soviet era rock and roll.

Park managers and traditional owners who administer Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) have just announced that beginning in October, 2019, visitors will no longer be allowed to climb one of Australia’s most iconic structures. The decision was based on both safety concerns and sensitivity to local Aboriginal groups. Steve Baldwin, Manager of Park Operations at Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park, joins us via Skype from the Australian Outback to discuss the decision and to talk about what visitors to the area can still enjoy. Also, Dave shares a story from his Christmas vacation last year about an encounter in Luang Prabang, Laos, with some invisible monks.
