A Must-Listen for Any Nomad

Our Americana offers a rich exploration of the current landscape of American society, but ot the metropolises of NYC or San Francisco. Instead, it seeks to investigate why many Millenials are bucking tradition, and radiating from urban centers back to to the small town existences that many generations have sought to escap. Through in-depth interviews with residents of rural microsms, this podcast explores the pull and the appeal of Anywhere, USA, examining what it means to travel here and there and back again. An excellent listen for those fascinated by the fabric of everyday life and what it is made of.

A sentimental slice of life

I listen to a lot of podcasts, I have to on my long commute or else I might go insane. They are all over the map genre-wise, and while they are all entertaining, no podcast until Our Americana has spoken to ME as the listener. This podcast, without pretense, takes an authentic look at small town life, particularly through the lens of my generation. I am a very small town girl who now lives in a city, so my initial assumption was that the show would just highlight common or touristy things about random towns. I was pleasantly surprised. Our Americana is so much more. The host of the show is able to stir such rare authenticity from the local folks in the towns that it's hard not to be interested not only in their stories, but I also find myself being driven to want to look up the towns on Wikipedia and Google Maps. This isn't a podcast where I could just absentmindedly tune out; I found myself being engaged, caring about stories and places that I guaranteed you I would not have heard otherwise. I wish the podcast was more frequent, it's good enough that I want to daily devour it, all the while learning about and appreciating what makes some small towns so deliciously livable.

Opposites Attract?

Who knew our young, hip contemporaries were making a B-line out of urban centers and heading towards the hills? Our Americana does. Millennials are trading in their bountiful baristas for more bucolic settings. As an aging Gen-X’er (did I just admit that?), I know all too well the need to find more pleasant aspects in my every day life outside of the proverbial rat race. Sometimes living in a major metropolis doesn’t afford that. This podcast takes a great look at what it takes to live in a major city, what breaks someone enough to make them leave that city, and the changing shift in perspective of “Gee, you really can go home (or another small town) again.” There’s more to life than artisanal loaves and lattes. I love hearing the decision process and peeking into the lives of individuals just looking for some form of suburban sustainability.
