This Week's IPG 'Floor 9' COVID-19 Podcast: Atlas Obscura's Warren Webster

In this, the ninth and last edition of a special COVID-19 series, IPG Media Lab's "Floor 9" media futures podcast, the lab chats with Warren Webster, CEO of Atlas Obscura, about the current state of the travel industry under the impact of COVID-19, how his company is pivoting to virtual experiences in response to the pandemic, and some predictions for the future of travel.

“Travel is not going to look like what it used to," Webster tells the lab, adding, "The notion of responsible travel that we are really behind has now expanded to mean something even bigger.”
