In this episode, I sat down with Douglas Mack, a funny and brilliant travel writer based in Minneapolis. His recent book, Europe on Five Wrong Turns a Day, is a tale of venturing through Europe using a guide book from 1963, and in our conversation, I chatted with Doug about his travels, particularly trying to figure out how the best European cities compare to Minneapolis and St Paul.
We discussed why Brussels and Amsterdam are the cities, our love/hate relationship with pedal pubs, and why Jean Nouvel’s Guthrie Theater’s design is half-baked. We had a great conversation last Sunday afternoon in the Dunn Brothers overlooking the Mississippi River. And what’s more, I successfully operated all the audio equipment. Enjoy this week’s podcast.
