What: Cuba has a long political history that caused the country to become stuck in a time capsule, but that can soon change as the U.S. government begins to lift the travel restrictions.

Why: Joel, an avid traveler who traveled to over 80 countries around the world, felt that Cuba is so unlike other countries he’ve seen before and that inspired him to create the special edition of his popular show, “No Barriers with Joel Barish” to share his firsthand and in-depth experience with the community.
