Rekindling the Intellectual, Spiritual, Creative legacy of Christians in Culture

rick_steves As host, writer and producer of the popular public television series Rick Steves' Europe, host of the public radio show, Travel with Rick Steves and best-selling author of 30 European travel books, Rick Steves has become one of America's most familiar brands. The name Rick Steves has become synonymous with trustworthy, thoughtful, down-to-earth advice. Yet from the beginning Rick Steves has mingled private conviction with his public image, from concerns for the poor and justice to his most recent stands for legalization of marijuana and opposition to the US war in Iraq. Rick seems to be a man who is unafraid to lose business through taking a stand on controversial issues, and in a day of spin, positioning and go-along-to-get-along, this seems unusual. Our subject is The Courage of Conviction and our guest is Rick Steves joined by Dan Voetmann of Destination Marketing.
