Tour Guide Radio

I need to record lots of interviews -- about 150 each year -- for my weekly one-hour public radio program. With so many brilliant guides in town for our summit, my radio staff and I take full advantage of the opportunity, and line up about 18 hours of recording sessions during our summit week. Along with generating great content for our radio show, podcast, and Rick Steves Audio Europe™ app, it gives me a valuable opportunity to get to know our guides' teaching styles.
