    Roadtrip Nation [#1006H] Uncertainty Is Opportunity As they enter the 5th week of their 7-week Roadtrip, the team reflects on how comfortable they've become with the unpredictable eccentricities of the Road. Megan, who is naturally wired to adhere to routine, is learning to embrace uncertainly, and this helps her cope with an influx of job rejections. In New York, the team's interview with Radiolab radio host Jad Abumrad serves to reinforce Megan's newfound acceptance of the unknown. Jad describes his unsuccessful attempts at other careers, noting that although he never thought he would get into radio, he has found it to be a surprisingly satisfying assimilation of his interests. His ability to adapt to changing circumstance teaches the Roadtrippers although they might not end up where they planned in life, their ultimate trajectory might be even better than what they expected. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG

    The Kate [#101H] Ana Gasteyer When Ana Gasteyer steps up to the mic, she evokes the swagger of an era when a lady ruled a nightclub and an audience knew they were in for a good time. Her performance is a perfect blend of the tongue-in -cheek comedy you can expect from a former Saturday Night Live cast member combined with the vocal range of a seasoned Broadway star. Gasteyer's eclectic range of covers and reimagined classics like "One Mint Julep" and "I Wish Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate" to her surprisingly smooth rendition of Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats", are the perfect showcase of her musical chops and comedic genius. Gasteyer tells stories with humor, heartbreak...and just a little splash of soda. The patter is real, the themes adult, the lyrics are timeless, and the music swings like crazy! duration 55:18   STEREO TVPG
