Roadtrip Nation: Beating The Odds Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Tue, Jun 12, 2018 -- 11:00 PM

This special follows Esther, James and Estephanie, who all overcame obstacles to make it to college, and are taking great strides to accomplish their dreams and follow their passions. From Hollywood, California to Baltimore, Maryland, the roadtrippers cruise across the U.S. in the iconic green RV connecting with professionals in the fields of education, sports, music and politics, to find out how they achieved their personal and professional goals. On their cross-country journey they meet Linda Singh, an adjutant general in the U.S. Army National Guard, and learn how she overcame a history of family abuse to serve in the military. ESPN commentator Michael Wilbon talks to them about paying attention to their passions and curiosities in life. In Washington, D.C., they interview Travis Robinson, head of global talent acquisition, diversity and inclusion for Spotify, as well as former First Lady Michelle Obama.
