Listen 00:48:42

Guests: Christopher Baker, Michael Oppenheimer

If visiting Cuba has been on your bucket list for a while, don’t wait too long to book your trip. With restored diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba, travel restrictions have eased this year, and there’s more tourist interest. People are saying the country is changing fast. This hour we start off taking about traveling to Cuba, what you’ll find when you arrive, and what the increase in tourism means for the island nation. Marty talks with travel journalist CHRISTOPHER BAKER who has written six book about Cuba including Moon Cuba and National Geographic Traveler Cuba guidebooks. Then, in light of the 3rd anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, news director Gene Sonn interviews MICHAEL OPPENHEIMER of Princeton University about his latest research on sea level rise and its implications.
