In The Moment ... March 24, 2020 Show 780 Hour 2

You might not be able to travel right now, as Americans are being asked to stay home in a nationwide effort to slow the spread of coronavirus. And travel has undeniably fueled the spread of the virus. But just like we flip through seed catalogs in the winter, surely we can dream and even plan for the places we'll go in the future. 
 
Jim Hagen is Secretary of South Dakota's Department of Tourism. He joins us for a look at the impact of COVID-19 on the travel and arts industry. And hopefully, he'll remind us that our great places are waiting for us on the other side of a pandemic.
