Hitting the Road - Airs Feb. 16

We're hitting the road tonight with three quirky travel pieces. We begin with an exploration of the dark underbelly of Sin City. Producer Scott Carrier hangs out with gamblers in "Las Vegas." After that, we listen in as Jenny Asarnow contemplates vacationing to "somewhere nice" with Amtrak's computerized travel agent. In "Julie the Amtrak God," we hear Jenny and Julie battle it out. Who will win? Human or computer? And then we wrap up the show with producer Jake Warga's bus journey to the West Coast. He talks to fellow travelers or gets fooled by them and visits a friend in jail. (We like the upbeat travel stories!)
