What makes a dog so ugly it’s adorable? This week, we kick off with tales from the annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest, spotlighting the charmingly unattractive eight-year-old Pekingese, Wild Thing. We’ll share what sets these uniquely endearing canines apart and reminisce about past champions like Scooter, whose quirky features have stolen many hearts. Prepare for plenty of laughs and tender moments as we celebrate this year’s winner and explore the allure of these lovable misfits.

Then, we shift to the imaginative world of life-size Monopoly, an interactive experience that first captivated audiences in London and is now set for a global tour starting in Denver. We dive into the strategic brilliance behind pop-up experiences for brands like Hasbro and how these temporary installations can determine the potential for permanent attractions. Plus, we spotlight the IAAPA Expo’s Show Ambassador Program, the European Space Agency’s innovative 3D-printed lunar bricks, and an ambitious new family entertainment center in Pocatello-Chubbuck. Through engaging discussions, we highlight the bold developments and creative strategies shaping the future of entertainment and space exploration.
