Atlanta

An old-time major league pitcher once said he worried about only two types of batter — righthanders and lefthanders. It's the same with airports: Only two kinds of airports present hostile environments: origin and destination. As I covered previously, origin airports are often the worst, but destination airports present their challenges, as well. You can't avoid all of them, but you can avoid some of the worst problems.

On “The Walking Dead,” Laurie Fortier portrays Agatha, the leader of a new group on the popular series – now in its 11th season. “Agatha is a bada--,” said the actress, who splits her time between Los Angeles and Atlanta. (She’s a) knives expert. So, to prepare for (playing) her, I trained with a Filipino knife expert.” Joking, she added that Agatha would make a resourceful travel companion. “I think I’d like to go camping with Agatha – maybe Yosemite,” she said. “I imagine she’d know how to pitch a tent, fish and make a fire.”

Jocko Sims portrays Dr. Floyd Reynolds on the NBC medical series, “New Amsterdam,” which kicks off its fourth season on September 21. An avid traveler, Sims said before he sets out to explore a new city or country, “I absolutely look up restaurants. I want to go to the best of the best, from very cheap to most expensive. What built the town or the culture? What place is impossible to get into? That floats my boat.” The 40-year-old actor is active on social media under the username @JockoSims.

When Yassir Lester isn’t working on the Showtime series “Black Monday” or the animated Fox series “Duncanville,” you can hear him on the comedy podcast, “My Brother’s Sneaker,” which he co-hosts with his brother, Isaiah Lester. “We came up with the idea by saying, ‘What if we talked about sneakers, but weren’t losers about it and were actually funny, unlike the other sneaker podcasts?’” said Lester, who lives in Los Angeles. Fans can stay in touch with him on Twitter (https://twitter.com/yassir_lester) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/yassir_lester/).

“My wife and I have taken frequent road trips in order to ensure our sanity during this tumultuous time,” said actor Gregg Daniel (“True Blood,” “Insecure,” “For Life”). “In all our trips, we wore masks and maintained social distancing. There are several places heading due north we love visiting, especially the coastal communities – Ventura, Ojai, Summerland, Montecito and Santa Barbara. I find it remarkable that not more than 90 miles from Los Angeles (where we reside), you can find yourself in an entirely different atmosphere.” Daniel is one of the stars of “7th and Union,” the boxing film that recently premiered at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival. Fans may stay in touch with the actor on Twitter (https://twitter.com/RealGreggDaniel), Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ActorGreggDaniel) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/officialgreggdaniel/).
