Technology Free Getaways

May 18, 2012

Cell phones, computers, televisions – they seem to be everywhere we go. Join host Ben Kieffer as we explore an effort by the Tri-State Tourism Council promoting technology-free getaways in eastern Iowa, southwest Wisconsin, and northwest Illinois. Ben talks with Dave Decker of the Council who’s leading the effort and with tri-state business owners about their “unplugged” experiences including owners of The Inn at Irish Hollow and Whispering Meadows Resort.  Later, Ben talks with Thomas Cooper, author of “Fast Media / Media Fast,” who writes about reclaiming our lives and families from media over-saturation.
