Greetings from Rome, Italy, where wife Sara, son Guthrie, and I are on a family vacation! I have to be quick because we've still got many miles of ruins to go before we sleep, but I just wanted to mention that tonight's show (at 7:30; repeated Friday night at 10:30 -- all times nine hours earlier in Italy) features my conversation with the delightful Jean-Michel Cousteau -- son of Jacques and, like his father, a passionate friend and documentarian of the sea. Also, there's a "Wandering Josh" segment in which I hand-feed a ravenous penguin named "Homie," who needs to go on a low-carb diet in the very near future (as will I, after all the gelati we've been consuming here).
More on Italy when I return (we just arrived last night, and saw the Pope in a window), but let me just mention one thing: it's not easy to use a moneybelt! For each Euro, I have to reach into my pants -- prompting Sara to crack wise about me needing to visit a Eurologist.
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy tonight's program -- and Cousteau's marvelous new series (co-produced by KQED), Ocean Adventures.
