What makes the fabulous Fox Theatre so fabulous? Great question! And that’s just what we ask the folks who work at the Fox. They answer by giving us an exclusive backstage tour, as well as an on-stage tour, and even an under-the-stage tour. And we tell the “theatrical” story as you’d expect—in 3 acts.
We take a trip beyond the sea…in downtown Atlanta, with a visit to the Georgia Aquarium. We meet everyone from scuba divers to media specialists and a few of the people who maintain this incredible environment—it takes 600 employees and 2,000 volunteers!
We’re in Augusta to learn about careers in the medical field with a visit to Georgia Regents University! We’re inspired by a doctor specializing in wilderness medicine, who was actually the first person in his family to go to college.
Despite what you see in cartoons, not all Park Rangers say “Hey, Boo Boo!” Luckily, one of ours does. You’ll want to meet her, along with the other rangers who help maintain this beautiful state park located just outside of Savannah.
The “secret” to what makes King of Pops’ Pops so delicious isn’t actually a secret at all, as you’ll see in this episode. But do note that the folks at this Atlanta-based company put a lot of love into the making of their delicious treats.
Fast Forward travels to the West side of the state to clear up some misconceptions about modern factories. We visit KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia in West Point. This state of the art facility rolls out 1 new car every minute, and we show the process—going from steel coils all the way to their test track.
A trip to any mall will give you a look at thousands of items that weren’t created down the street. Many of them were imported from distant lands. And the Georgia Ports Authority in Savannah…the 4th largest port in the country…is the point of entry for, quite literally, tons of them.
