The coronavirus has cratered the global travel industry. By some estimates, over 100 million tourism jobs have been put at risk and, by the end of the year, economic damages could very well exceed $1 trillion.

This halt on travel has given rise to a new type of travel: Virtual tours.

Today on the show, Cardiff and Stacey head on a virtual *audio* tour around the world, looking at economic indicators on every other continent.

Sounds included "Fasten Seatbelt," by Iwan Gabovitch, CC-BY3 license, "Addis Ababa, Arat Kilo Roundabout," "Boardwalk," "Waltzing Mathilda."
