Description

Welcome to the End of Tourism, a podcast about wanderlust, exile, and radical hospitality. For some, tourism can entail learning, freedom, and financial survival. For others, it means the loss of culture, land, and lineage. Our conversations explore the unauthorized histories and consequences of modern travel. They are dispatches from the resistance. Hosted by Chris Christou.

My guest on this episode is Andrew McLuhan, an author and educator living in Bloomfield, Ontario. He writes and delivers speeches, classes, workshops on McLuhan methods and work, consults with individuals and companies on understanding McLuhan work in culture and technology and applying that work today to bring insight and new perception and understanding. Andrew McLuhan is a grandson of Marshall McLuhan, noted Canadian professor from the University of Toronto who was a pioneer in the field of Media/Communications studies. Andrew is director of The McLuhan Institute, founded in 2017 to continue the work begun by Marshall McLuhan and carried on by Eric McLuhan in exploring and understanding culture and technology. The McLuhan Institute preserves their family archive and collections, and focuses on bringing forward and making accessible the practical tools for exploring and understanding the nature and effects of human innovation so that we might be more conscious agents of change. ------------------------------------------------------ Substack: The McLuhan Newsletter The McLuhan Institute Website - Twitter Gray Area Understanding Media Intensive (New class starting in Sept 2023) Poetry: Written Matter (Revelore Press) ------------------------------------------------------ Discover more episodes and join the conversation: ⁠⁠http://www.theendoftourism.com⁠⁠ Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter @theendoftourism Join the Conspiracy!

My guest on this episode is Murray Cox, a multidisciplinary Australian-American artist and activist based in Newburgh NY, who uses visual, audio, spatial and data storytelling to explore themes of economic and racial equity and to fight for housing justice and the right to our cities. He is also the data activist founder of Inside Airbnb, a mission driven project which provides free data on Airbnb’s impact on residential communities, and advocates for regulations that protect our neighbourhoods. Murray and I gathered to discuss his project Inside Airbnb, how it began, where Airbnb fits in the housing crisis, how Airbnb intentionally misleads the public, as well as racial discrimination evident on Airbnb's model. We talk about the various reports that Inside Airbnb has released over the years, digital nomadism, housing for all, the host-guest relationship, and the need to organize the neighbourhood. ------------------------------------------------------ Inside Airbnb Official Website - Facebook - Twitter Resist Airbnb Official Website - Facebook ------------------------------------------------------ Discover more episodes and join the conversation: ⁠http://www.theendoftourism.com⁠ Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter @theendoftourism Join the Conspiracy!

On this episode, I'm honoured to host and welcome back to the pod, my dear friend, Stephen Jenkinson, MTS, MSW. Stephen is a worker, author, storyteller, musician and culture activist. In 2010, he founded Orphan Wisdom, a house for learning skills of deep living and making human culture that are mandatory in endangered, endangering times. It is a redemptive project that comes from where he comes from. It is rooted in knowing history, being claimed by ancestry, working for a time he won’t live to see. When not on the road, he makes books, succumbs to interviews, tends to labours on a small farm, mends broken handles and fences, and bends towards lifeways dictated by the seasons of the boreal borderlands. We discuss winter(ing) and going without, the ominous Old Country, being more European than the Europeans, what it means to love a place, the Axes of the world and the local numinous, the towering order of staying home. In the second half I propose a different route than we usually take, towards the living and the dead and time, towards justice and freedom. I have to say, Stephen was incredibly generous with his time and we're blessed to hear from him.

On this episode, I speak to Cecilia Morgan, a professor in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning at the University of Toronto. Her work focuses on nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century Canada as part of the British Empire and transnational worlds. She has been researching the history of English-Canadians’ and Indigenous peoples’ travel, tourism, and transnational mobility for over twenty-five years, and is particularly interested in the way that gender and empire have been part of those processes. Her publications in these areas include Sweet Canadian Girls Abroad: English-Canadian Actresses on Transnational Stages, Travellers Through Empire: Indigenous Voyages From Early Canada, and ‘A Happy Holiday’: English-Canadians and Transatlantic Tourism. Professor Morgan lives in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, a destination for cultural and wine tourism. As well as witnessing the many changes the town has undergone since the early 1980s with the expansion of tourism, she has written about its history in her book, Creating Colonial Pasts: History, Memory, and Commemoration in Southern Ontario. ------------------------------------------------------ Cecilia Morgan's UofT Page Travellers through Empire: Indigenous Voyages from Early Canada Sweet Canadian Girls Abroad: A Transnational History of Stage and Screen Actresses Cecilia Morgan's Google Scholar Page ------------------------------------------------------ Discover more episodes and join the conversation: http://www.theendoftourism.com Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter @theendoftourism Join the Conspiracy!

On this episode, my guest is Fiore Longo, a Research and Advocacy Officer at Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples. She is the director of Survival International France and Survival International Spain. Fiore coordinates Survival’s conservation campaign, and has visited many communities in Africa and Asia that face human rights abuses in the name of conservation. Months ago, Survival International reached out to let me know what was happening in Tanzania regarding the brutal and illegal evictions of the Maasai from their territories. Finally, we managed to record what is a deeply nuanced and important conversation regarding those very evictions and their history. We discuss the western imaginary of nature, the enclosure of the commons & the creation of national parks, the second industrial revolution in Africa, the contradictions and criminality of conservation NGOs, how eco-reserves are created to make room for tourism and the costs that come along with it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Survival International Official Website: Maasai Evictions Press Release The Maasai Are Under Attack in the Name of Conservation: 'This Is Our Land, and We Won't Leave' Why 30×30 would be the worst possible outcome of COP15 Survival International Official Website: Decolonizing Conservation Campaign Film: Serengeti Shall Not Die Journalist Mark Dowie ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Support the podcast and the movement through our Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/theendoftourism Discover more episodes and join the conversation: http://www.theendoftourism.com Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter @theendoftourism‍

We then continued with themes of "cultivating versus consuming culture," worker solidarity in the tourism industry, the notion that charity is not solidarity, and bringing a foundation of philosophy to the tourism industry.

On this episode I’m joined by Christopher Riendeau, a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from the University of North Carolina Wilmington where he learned first hand what it means to live in a tourist town. Chris’ research focuses on applied ethics in tourism and more specifically around existentialism and bad faith in the search for "authentic" tourism, and the subject/object problems inherent to the industry. In the midst of the COVID pandemic, he published an incredible essay entitled “Tourism, Colonialism and Disease,” which we talk about at length in this episode. Christopher joins me from his home in Portland, Oregon to dialogue about the revenge of tourism in a post-pandemic world, tourism as neocolonialism, existentialist philosophy and the search for the authentic, the master-servant relationship, labor-washing, and finally a slow, bicycle-driven form of travel. We end Season 1 almost a year later, where it began, approaching the dire consequences of travel and tourism in our times. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Essay: Tourism, Colonialism and Disease Essay: The Existential Quandry of the Millennial at Disneyworld ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Support the pod & movement via our Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/theendoftourism Discover more episodes and join the conversation: http://www.theendoftourism.com Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter @theendoftourism
On this episode, our guest is Bayo Akomolafe, a speaker, author, fugitive neo-materialist com-post-activist public intellectual and Yoruba poet. But when he takes himself less seriously, he is a father to Alethea and Kyah, and the grateful life-partner to Ej as well as the sworn washer of nightly archives of dishes. The convener of the concepts of ‘postactivism’, ‘transraciality’ and ‘ontofugitivity’, Bayo is a widely celebrated international speaker, teacher, public intellectual, essayist and author of two books, These Wilds Beyond our Fences: Letters to My Daughter on Humanity’s Search for Home (North Atlantic Books) and We Will Tell our Own Story: The Lions of Africa Speak. He is also the Executive Director and Chief Curator for The Emergence Network and host of the online postactivist course, ‘We Will dance with Mountains’. Bayo joins me to speak about lostness as a relationship, his unique take on escape and exile, migrant bodies in the tourist wake, the place of decoloniality and post-activism in a tourist world, making sanctuary from fugitivity, and the monster as the face of hospitality.

A professor at the University of Washington for the past 20+ years, Dr. Anu knows that the most compelling conversations on race, identity and belonging take place when people feel valued and heard.  Her book Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World was shortlisted for the Washington State Book Award, selected as a Winner of Newsweek's "Future of Travel Awards in Storytelling," and named one of Oprah Magazine’s “26 Best Travel Books of All Times.” Dr. Anu joins me to discuss her book Beyond Guilt Trips, the modern crisis of identity, heritage travel and homeland journeys, the power of whiteness, guilt and shame in tourism, privilege as a four-letter word, and finally, holding space at home and abroad.
