Our final Beyond the Dream webisode is online today! Each of the three webisode specials offer a sneak peek at our upcoming documentary about three young adult immigrants–who have only temporary protection from deportation–as they navigate the uncertainty of their twenties…and of their legal status. Today’s clip features a look around the Los Angeles-Boyle Heights location of College Track, a nonprofit that helps high school students get on the right…

Today we’re rolling out another webisode special from Beyond the Dream, our upcoming documentary about three young adult immigrants–who have only temporary protection from deportation–as they navigate the uncertainty of their twenties…and of their legal status. The newest mini-episode is about a very important–and very messy–part of the Dream Team’s daily life on the road: dumping the RV’s sewage tanks. To show solidarity, we asked the crew here at Roadtrip Nation to share some of their greatest, weirdest, or…

Today, we’re debuting a sneak peek of one of our upcoming projects: Beyond the Dream. The documentary follows three young adult immigrants–who have only temporary protection from deportation–as they navigate the uncertainty of their twenties…and of their legal status.  At Roadtrip Nation, we’ve learned that when you’re out on the road, every situation quickly becomes a metaphor that can be applied to your everyday life. And after logging 19 days and…

We’ve alllllllll worked terrible, horrible no good, very bad jobs. While it’s fun to talk to trash on those jobs while we’re still working them, oftentimes, once we leave a bad job, we just want to cut all strings, pretend it never happened, wipe it from our memory Men in Black style, etc. But while your job might’ve felt like a waste of time, simply writing it off as “that…

If we’re being honest, it seems like Brad A. Johnson is living our dream life: he’s a food critic and photographer who gets paid to travel and dine out, he’s won a prestigious James Beard Award–one of the culinary world’s highest honors–and, perhaps most enviously, he recently participated as one half of a two-person team that tackled the arduous task of reviewing every single restaurant in Disneyland. But while the…

Tell us if this sounds like you: you’ve got LinkedIn, Indeed, and Monster bookmarked on your work computer. You check them for new job postings every day, plugging in different keywords, setting new alerts, waiting and wishing for the perfect position to pop up. You KNOW that once you find the perfect spot, the cover letter will basically write itself, and you’ll be on your way. But as the days…

As summer gets itself well under way, we have to take a second to mourn the passing of our favorite time of year: the Sunday Season. Yes, those ten glorious weeks out of the year when HBO bestows upon us a lineup of TV shows so incredible that it tricks us into actually looking forward to Sunday nights. Ten weeks in which we can spend Sunday evenings blissfully escaping into…

Our “Women in STEM” road trip is wrapping up soon, so we figured it was about time for a fun update from the road! Last week, as the three road-trippers made their way through Texas in the big green RV, they were invited to make an exciting pit stop at AT&T’s headquarters in Dallas. The Women in STEM Roadtrip is part of a collaboration with AT&T through the AT&T Aspire…

Every day, America’s service members put their lives on the line to serve their country with pride and courage. But for many, the most formidable mission they’ll face is the transition back into civilian life. This past April, we joined forces with the USO–as part of their Transition 360 Alliance–to send three veterans and transitioning service members on an exploratory cross-country road trip. These three road-trippers, Sam, Bernard, and Helen,…

The number of STEM jobs is increasing–but the number of women entering these fields isn’t. We’re on a mission to change that. Studies have shown that women are more likely to pursue and succeed in STEM fields if they see examples of women who already have. That’s why we are collaborating with AT&T, through the AT&T Aspire initiative, to send three young women on the road to seek out and…
