Award-winning travel writer and photographer David Noyes has learned to experience the world through more than his lens and pen.  He says that in order to appreciate our world we must investigate a destination as part of the human condition.  His new book, The Photographing Tourist, David shows us remote places around the world and he offers tips that well help anyone develop the well-trained eye of a travel photographer.

Bestselling author Patricia Cornwell has sold over 100 million books of forensic thrillers.  Before CSI or  NCIS, her first book, Portmortem, introduced forensic research 25 years ago with medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta.  Scarpetta investigates another suspicious murder in Cornwell's newest book, Depraved Heart, and this murder has a twist that involves Scapetta's niece, Lucy.

How many places would offer an opportunity to speak to an astronaut, or a famous historical figure?  Where could you see fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls or Terra Cotta Warriors outside of Israel or China?  The answer is the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.  We will take a virtual tour inside the Museum and learn about the global citizenship it fosters.

Weathly yachtsmen usually take to the ocean for fun, but philanthropist David Rockefeller, Jr. has a different idea.  As part of our "Best Of" series we will share our 2009 interview with David as he prepared to circumnavigate the Americas and boost awareness about the health of our seas and global warming.
