Get Outta Here! Podcast: A Visit to the Primaries

Presidential candidates go to a lot of trouble to court voters in the critical early primary states. But not everyone they encounter on the trail in New Hampshire or South Carolina is a New Hampshire or South Carolina voter. Visitors come from near and far to see the show in person, rather than on TV. For some, it’s the contemporary version of visiting the birth-of-the-Republic sites in Philadelphia.

And on My Favorite Trip: Taking a 12-year old to the New Hampshire primary.

The April fire that melted the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral has wrought big changes in the center of the French capital’s tourist industry.

AP Paris correspondent Thomas Adamson updates us on what’s happening around Notre Dame, what the investigation of the fire looks like, and what has happened to those billion-dollar pledges of support for its restoration.

Get Outta Here! – In Search of the real Green Book

Segregated resorts and legally enforced “sunset towns” were a real feature of the American landscape for black travelers. The Green Book, which gave its title to the Oscar-winning movie, was a real compilation — published between 1936 and 1967 — of restaurants, hotels, even gas stations and hair salons, where African-Americans could be assured of welcome. With the passage of public accommodations laws, many of those sites fell into disuse or faded away. Now a new generation of visitors is seeking them out, placing plaques and inspiring renovations. The AP’s Russell Contreras and Jay Reeves report.
