Why do Albanians hang stuffed animals outside their homes? “Watt’s World” follows Emmy award-winning ABC News journalist and producer Nick Watt as he explores the world, asking only questions he would ask. Like, is cuddling the newest profession in Portland? Are Lemurians or Buddhists more fun on Mount Shasta? Having reported on everything from royal weddings to red carpets, Watt’s quick wit and humorous take encourages viewers to approach travel in a unique and unexpected way. This is our world, but through his eyes.
