Husky rescue organizations are reporting a dramatic increase in abandoned huskies, which they attribute to the "Game of Thrones" craze. We talk to the Arizona Humane Society about this problem, find out more about the husky breeds unique needs, and how to choose the best pet for your home.

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake opens up about new book 

Drawing inspiration from Senator Barry Goldwater's 1960s manifesto, "The Conscience of a Conservative," Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) releases his own book, giving it the same title, in an effort to define conservatism in the age of Trump. "The Conscience of a Conservative," takes a stance, pushing Republicans to take on their own president. The senator joins GMAZ to open up about his just-released book, which some are calling "candid" and "forceful."

Hottest travel: Two U.S. cities make "the best" travel list

Only two U.S. cities have made "Travel + Leisure's" best cities in the world to travel to. Can you guess which cities? Staci Lichterman of Pop Culture Travel helps us plan trips to both locations. And, all you'll need is a long weekend and a sense of adventure! We learn how to travel in-style to Charleston, South Carolina and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The World's Best Cities list also speaks to our readers' growing interest in Asia, as seven of the top 15 urban destinations are in the region. Kyoto, home to some of Japan's most well-preserved traditional architecture, Chiang Mai, Thailand, best known for its walled Old City, and Siem Reap, Cambodia, the jumping-off point for Angkor Wat, all made repeat appearances.

Charleston our top city in the U.S. for the fifth-year running was the sole American city among the top 10 overall; Florence, another World's Best veteran, was joined by European hubs like Rome and Barcelona; while Oaxaca, another Mexican city with a thriving culinary scene and cultural depth, came into the mix again for the first time since 2010.
