It took one trip during college for the travel bug to bite Janna Graber.  Her first international trip inspired an award-winning writing career, television appearances and countless travel experiences that she could only dream of.  Janna has written for more than 40 publications and she's published three books.  Her latest, A Pink Suitcase, offers 22 tales of women's travel and the internal and external journeys they experienced as they explored the world.

The multi award-winning CBS reality show, The Amazing Race, has been entertaining audiences since 2001.  The show was created by partners Eleise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster as part of a bet.  Viewers have traveled around the world vicariously through The Amazing Race teams as they race for the $1 million grand prize.  As part of World Footprints' "Best Of" series we are sharing our interview with Executive Producer Bertram van Munster who joined us a few seasons ago to share his travel experiences and give us a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the making of his Emmy-winning show.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has four Trusted Traveler programs that it oversees.  Each program offers specific benefits defending on a traveler's needs.  Steve Redlinger from DHS joins us to explain the three programs under the Customs and Border Protection Agency that benefit international travelers.
