Any Stupid Questions about... Tourism?

Ever feel like you missed something important when it comes to the news? A fact, a detail, or an event that it feels like everyone else knows about, and now you'd look like a moron if you asked someone to explain? Well, here's a podcast that will ask those questions so you don't have to.

This week, host Danielle Ward is joined by Dr James Kennell, principal lecturer on Tourism, Events & Hospitality at Greenwich University in London, who can tell us literally everything about tourism. Danielle is joined by comedians Jessica Fostekew (The Guilty Feminist ) and Nat Tapley (The Revolution Will Be Televised,

Questions asked and answered include:

  • How many Queens does our economy need?
  • Why shouldn't you pay attention to Americans and Brits on TripAdvisor?
  • When's the best time to book a holiday?
  • Why is foreign money easier to spend? if you've sort of been guessing the answers based on a gut feeling, why not listen and find out for sure? And then subscribe to stay equally informed about other issues, as we get around to them.

All our guests are on Twitter, so go and say hello - @jameskennell @jessicafostekew and @natt, and Danielle is @captainward. And the show itself now has a Twitter account: @AnyStupidQs. Follow it for information about upcoming episodes, recordings, and extra bits of the show that had to be cut for any reason (usually it's just a bit off-topic; this week it's because we wanted the show to be under 45 minutes long).
