Today I’m doing a collaborative show with Josh Hallmark from the podcast Our Americana, which explores unique small towns across America through the stories that impact, cultivate, and challenge community.

America can feel oppressive. Every day it feels more and more like pieces of it are disappearing. That it’s losing its value. But … there are monuments and mementos of the past if we just take a moment from our busy lives to take a look. Strange reminders of small victories, new life, love stories, and the strength of community. These stories are all around us, relics of station wagon days, on the highways and gravel roads that connect us all. It’s easy to dismiss them as icons of capitalism; if you build it, they will come, and buy. But, there’s always something more there, something deeper.

I'm Josh Hallmark from Our Americana and I'm Emily Prokop and this is the story behind Roadside Attractions.
