Last week I mentioned a new index of housing affordability within the English-speaking world, prepared by Demographia and published by the Frontier Centre, Canada. This has some shocking insights (Do not move to Vancouver!) and the coauthor, Wendell Cox, explains the latest details.

In the remaining time, I discuss Duolingo.com, FARC violence in Colombia, a new openness to incorporation in Chile, and alternative currencies in Greece.

Matilda Kahl has produced the most incredible travel video I have ever seen (below), and it captures her visit to Kyrgyzstan. Originally from Sweden, she is now an art director in New York City, and she shares her story with us.

Brad “the Butcher” Jordan of Food Riot Radio joins me as we reminisce with the husband-wife couple who founded HousesittingExperience.com. They explain the concept and share their journeys from the past year.

  1. Hi Fergus,
    Nice to know about your radio show. I just listened to the interview of Matilda and thought to share a blog by wandering Earl who happened to visit Kyrgyzstan and here are his insights: http://www.wanderingearl.com/how-to-know-youre-traveling-in-kyrgyzstan/
