Barry Goldsmith, professor of architecture and comedy, is in the 10th year of his travel column, "Been There, HAVEN'T Done That" – recommending sites around the world missed by most tourists – and even missed by many natives. Goldsmith's next "Been There, HAVEN'T Done That" franchise is this radio show in which the professor takes you to the 117 countries he's visited – one at a time.
