Did you know there was a time when Kings & Queens ruled Park City – as well as cleaned, cooked and staffed the front desk at the Chateaux Après Lodge?
This is Hope Woodside with your weekly Park City History Bit.
Back in the 1970s and ‘80s the owners of Chateaux Après, Ed and Sue Hosenfeld, ran ads throughout the United States to recruit kids to help them run the lodge with their eight children. To boost response, they nicknamed the positions “Kings” and “Queens.”
Today we talked with Clive Thompson, contributing writer to Wired and NY Times Magazine and also one of the people chosen to test the Google Glass. He’ll tell us about that and also talk about his new book called “Smarter Than You Think, How Technology is Changing our Minds for The Better." Then Daniel Leiberman, head of the evolutionary biology department at Harvard., speaks about his book: "The Story of the Human Body: Evolution, Health, and Disease."
