October 26, 2016

It's how this whole thing started. When we set off on the open road that May evening, we knew our lives were about to change; we had no idea exactly how. We had no idea exactly how much, how wonderfully; how it would take us to right here, right now.

#VanLife is, of course, bigger than just us and our travels. And so, I reached out to some of our fellow roadtrippers to see how life on the road has changed them and their perspective on America.

And, just like with any great roadtrip, some music for the ride.

S02|E04: Madrid, New Mexico (M.I.S.T.)

October 11, 2016

A high desert ghost town is revitalized as an unincorporated, off-the-grid artists' community. In this ungoverned, un-policed town of 219, law enforcement consists of a self-appointed, five-person Intervention and Safety Team. This town and its governing by volunteerism will change the way you think about law enforcement, guns, ethics, and their impact on community.

This week's guests:

Connie Mayhew: Connie owns and operates Madrid's one and only roadside attraction, a donation-based photo park.

Mike T: Mike is the self-appointed head of a volunteer security team, in a town with no police.
