Hello My Name is America Podcast

Hello My Name is America

A Podcast where we explore the root causes of division in America and discover what it would take to heal our divides.

Would you quit your job and sell everything to pursue a dream? This was the decision facing us back in 2016. On this podcast we retell the story of how our ‘yes’ to that question unlocked a dream that launched our family of five on a 50-state learning journey into the deep well of division in America. After 14 solid months on the road, having heard hundreds of stories and witnessed countless American experiences unlike our own, the journey continues in the form of this podcast, as we invite you to hear the stories and meet the people who touched our lives and reshaped our understanding of America’s past, present and who we could become.
