Destination on the Left is joined by Heather Bagshaw, the Tourism Director of both Greene County and the Northern Catskills in New York State.

We explore how Greene County positions itself within the Catskills region by highlighting its unique lodging properties and all-inclusive resorts. And we also talk about the silver linings in travel and tourism that came out of the global pandemic. Attracting Residents and Businesses Greene County and the Northern Catskills draw a lot of tourist traffic from the New York City Metro Area. In the last two years, however, there has been a surge of Brooklynites as well. City dwellers from the five boroughs are not only coming as visitors, but they are also opening businesses in the region as well. This has had a significant impact on both tourism and economic development. Residents of Greene County are embracing newcomers and the unique flavors they bring to the community, and this has played a significant role in the region’s growth. Create Unique Travel Experiences The organic traffic flow has transformed Greene County already, but Heather has also done a terrific job using creativity and collaboration to better position Greene County within the Catskills. All-inclusive family resorts are a major draw in Greene County, and these resorts continue to attract the same families for generations. But travelers also want to have travel experiences that no one else has had before. Greene County’s unique lodging such as the “Treetopia” RV ground and the tiny home resort offer tourists the opportunity to create a memorable travel experience, unlike any vacation they’ve had before.

Putting Union Gap on the Map When most people think of Washington state, they think of destinations like Seattle and Spokane. Union Gap is not so familiar, but it has a flavor all its own. Located on the east side of the state, Union Gap is nestled in the agricultural belt of Washington which gets over 300 days of sun per year. It is only a half-hour from the mountains, with Mt. Rainier in plain view. Despite its small size, Union Gap offers an unparalleled charm that appeals to outdoor enthusiasts and wine/craft beer connoisseurs alike. Eric has been able to leverage all of these traits to put Union Gap on the map, and he is helping tons of other small-town destinations do the same. Finding Opportunity in 2021 2020 has obviously been a challenging year for everyone in every destination, but looking forward, Eric plans to continue what he started. Union, Gap was on the precipice of widespread recognition before the pandemic. They have tons of unique events, from the world’s largest sprint car show to the annual Pioneer Power show hosted every summer. Eric’s focus as the Marketing and Tourism Director has been to bring these events to the forefront and use them to define Union Gap. He has continued to do that virtually during the pandemic, and as things reopen, the physical events will re-emerge as well. 2021 has so much opportunity, and Union Gap will be positioning themselves as an essential stop in the year of the road trip, with tons of outdoor activities to keep you busy. There is opportunity for every small town destination out there, so join the conversation in Eric’s #SmallTownTourismChat on Twitter. #SmallTownTourismChat: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23smalltowntourismchat&src=typeahead_click Website: http://www.visituniongap.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/eric-patrick-81b4ba20/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/UnionGapTourism/ Twitter: @UnionGapWA We value your thoughts and feedback and would love to hear from you.

Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas (0:00:00) “Pajama Project” is the highest rerun Oprah segment of all time, and it features a non-profit that gives pajamas and books to struggling children in the U.S. If you haven't seen it yet, it's sure to make you cry or feel more inspired.  Well today, we have the founder of the Pajama Program, Genevieve Piturro, on the show today. She joins us to discuss her life mission and give advice on how we can transform our own lives by finding more meaning and human connection. She's the author of the book Purpose, Passion and Pajamas being released tomorrow.    Petitions (0:17:04) One of the blessings of living in America is the first amendment, which gives us the right to freedom of speech and to petition the government. There are a lot of differing opinions swirling the United States, but you might not have to storm the white house or start a protest rally to get your opinion across, for centuries people have been making a difference by quietly just collecting some signatures. Petitioning is one of the oldest and maybe simplest ways citizens have advocated throughout history. But with petitioning moving online, is it still even effective? Here to tell us the real impact of those signatures is Harvard professor specializing in petition research, Daniel Carpenter.    Kitchen Organization (0:31:58) Our kitchens are the center of our homes. They're where we cook, meet, and eat with our family and friends. They're where we start and end our days and they help us to reconnect with our loved ones. But they can also get messy and cluttered and end up causing us more stress than they relieve. Here to teach us ways in which we can make our kitchen most efficient and discuss all things kitchen organization is professional organizer and founder and head educator of Organize With Faith, Faith Roberson.    NASA and Women in STEM (0:41:00) According to a 2018 study by the NGC Project, women make up only 28% of the STEM workforce in the United States. Despite producing some of the most innovative technology and research results that we've ever seen, the STEM world still has a long way to go in terms of diversity. So, what is it like working in a field in which you are severely under-represented? Joining us again on the show is Dr. Knicole Colon, a research astrophysicist at NASA and a woman in STEM. We're discussing her experiences working in the STEM field and how we can encourage other girls to pursue their career dreams as well.    BoardGameGeek (0:52:50) With limited options for entertainment these days, we've seen traditional board games make a comeback. They're a great way to get the whole family involved in something fun. Plus, they help pass the time. We're all familiar with games like Clue, Battleship, and Uno. But what are some other games we can play? To help us out we invited Eric Martin on the show today. He's part of the BoardGameGeek channel on YouTube.    Snail Mail (1:08:03) I love getting mail. Whether it's a package or a wedding invitation, as long as it isn't a bill, there's something exciting about getting something with your name on it. The mail we get today, however, looks different then the mail we would've received 10 or 20 years ago. Handwritten letters, especially, have almost completely died out. But here today is someone who has worked to revive that lost art: Ivan Cash, artist, filmmaker and founder of the Snail Mail My Email project.    World's Largest Frying Pan (1:23:18) We are speaking with Leon Sikes, a former Tourism Director from Rose Hill, North Carolina, home of the World's Largest Frying Pan where they can cook up to 365 chickens at a time in the 16 by 45 ft pan. We can't wait to learn about this record-breaking frying pan and hear how it was built and what it is used for.    Everyday Heroes (1:32:40) What makes someone a hero to you? Oftentimes when we hear the word hero, we think of masks and capes and incredible superpowers. But what about the unsung heroes that are on the frontlines in hospitals, grocery stores, and on the road delivering packages just to name a few? During these quarantine times, these people have gone above and beyond, putting their lives at risk to make our lives easier. Recently, Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Jim Brickman released a new song celebrating these heroes in our lives and the impact that their work has on us. We have him here with us on the phone to talk about his brand new song, “Everyday Heroes”.

Supporting Kid's Dreams (0:00:00) We've all heard the fantastic dreams about what kids want to be when they grow up –the most famous rockstar of all time, the first girl to live on Pluto, even president of the entire universe, to name a few examples. And while we laugh at some of these dreams as being a little unrealistic, we also don't want to restrict their capabilities and creativity. If your kid wants to be an Olympic gold medalist, what's really to stop them? So, taking all of this into account, how can we be realistic about supporting our child's dreams, while also making sure to not limit their full potential? Today we are joined by Katie Hurley, a child and adolescent psychotherapist, here with us to discuss how to healthily support your child's dreams.   Lisa's Adventure Club Grand Prize Giveaway (0:20:41) Lisa and Richie announce the winner of the Adventure Club Grand Prize and chat with her about her plans.   Teaching Teens about the Dangers of Driving (0:24:31) Teaching your child to drive is more stressful than potty training, teaching them how to read, and letting them go on their first date. Car accidents are the leading cause of teenage death at 33 percent. Over 300,000 teenagers are involved in car accidents every year. So, how can you not worry?! Most states require at least 50 hours of driving experience before your child can get their driver's license. So, how can you and your child survive those long hours with as little stress as possible? To help answer this question and more, we've invited Kirk Halliday, a father of five and primary driving instructor to 4 of his children over the past 10 years.   Inappropriate Questions (0:36:04) We've all before been on the receiving end of inappropriate questions. Questions like “How is a great girl (or guy) like you still single?” or “What are you making at your job?” Questions like these make us feel uncomfortable and leave us unsure as to how to answer or react. But what makes people ask questions that are obviously intrusive and unwelcome? And what's the best way to handle the situation when it inevitably arises? Here to talk about why we ask inappropriate questions and how to handle it if you've been asked is LCSW F. Diane Barth.   World's Largest Frying Pan (0:52:48) What is the most food you have ever made for a gathering? Well our next guest might have you beat. We are speaking with Leon Sikes, a former Tourism Director from Rose Hill, North Carolina, home of the World's Largest Frying Pan where they can cook up to 365 chickens at a time in the 16 by 45 ft pan. We can't wait to learn about this record-breaking frying pan and hear how it was built and what it is used for.   Reinvent Your Career (1:09:56) The economy is changing, different industries are changing, and that means that available jobs are changing. If you've worked in the same industry forever, you might be a worried that you're never going to be able to go back to what you're used to. But maybe that's a good thing. Maybe that means it's time for a fresh start, time to reinvent your career. Louie Gravance is a Business and Workplace Consultant who spent twenty-five years working at The Walt Disney Company. We're excited to pick his creative brain on this trying topic today.   Weekend Review (1:27:55) Lisa and Richie talk about what there is to do this weekend, from the newest shows coming to streaming services to the New York Times Bestseller list.

Bob Sanborn, Interim Executive Director of The Provincetown Business Guild talks with Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ about what’s happening this summer in Provincetown, Massachusetts and beyond. From 20 members in 1978 to over 300 members today the Provincetown Business Guild (PBG) is the first tourism organization in the country whose primary mission is to promote and support tourism for LGBTQ visitors. The Guild is committed to improving the Provincetown community by advocating for the acceptance of diversity and tolerance through projects, programs and education. The Guild welcomes residents and visitors to experience America’s first LGBTQ tourist destination. One of the most popular events this summer is the Provincetown Carnival that takes place August 17th through the 24th. This year’s theme is The Enchanted Forest and for the 41st Annual Carnival Parade that takes place on August 22nd the Grand Marshals will be Lea Delaria and Trixie Mattel with David Velasco Bermudez who is a Stonewall Riots Survivor named as Honorary Grand Marshal. The parade begins at 3P along Commercial Street and you’re encouraged to come dressed in your most fabulous Carnival themed finery. We talked to Bob about what he hopes to accomplish with the Provincetown Business Guild and his spin on our LGBTQ issues. Bob Sanborn comes from an accounting, financial services, marketing and risk management background. Following his corporate career he owned two Provincetown guest houses the Prince Albert and Queen Vic for 13 years. He has also served as the Town’s Tourism Director and served on the Town’s Visitor Services Board for a number of years. When the former Executive Director of the Provincetown Business Guild (PBG) resigned earlier this year he agreed to take the helm. The PBG’s mission is to promote and market Provincetown as an LBGTQ year round destination and to produce events such as PRIDE, Carnival, Holly Folly and First Light. In 2018 The Provincetown Business Guild and its separate 501(c)3 entity launched The Provincetown LGBTQ Welcome & Resource Center (“The Center”) with a new storefront for The Center at 368 Commercial Street.
