Q&A: Professional Roadtripper Willie Witte on Why You Should Always Say ‘Yes’ to Pig Wrestling

There’s always an interesting tension we have to deal with during the month of August: a big part of us wants to get out there and live out the rest of our summer in the fabulously spontaneous [and Instagram-able] ways we’d dreamed about all winter!!!   But…realistically, the sweltering heat often makes us turn down fun experiences in favor of sitting directly in front of a large fan and not moving or...

Missed Veronica Belmont on Roadtrip Nation Live?

We had an amazing time speaking with Veronica Belmont, host of web series Tekzilla and podcast Sword and Laser. I feel very fortunate to have heard her story. Usually, people don't get opportunities to be reminded that sometimes life will take you down a road that's unknown, but somehow it all works out for the best.   It was nice to finally get my geek swagger back!

Featured Musician: The Loose Roosters

    I had the opportunity to chat with Steve from The Loose Roosters and hear his insights about music in his life. He talked about doing what you want to do despite what others say, and playing music for yourself, not for anyone else. His words were really inspiring and hit home with my own feelings about playing the guitar and drums. It was an awesome interview, so check...

Featured Musician: The Colourist

After their band practice, I was able to chat with The Colourist. They recently played at our Fall Tour/Season Seven Launch Party and their drummer, Maya, is the director of the TV series here at Roadtrip Nation! I'm not gonna lie, I was surprisingly nervous for this one. Maybe I was just worried that they weren't going to open up all that much, but as you can see in their interview,...
