One Minivan, One America

The DoubleSpeak team spent the end of the 2006 political cycle on the road traveling on the “One Minivan, One American Tour 2006.” The tour took us around the country and was an effort to connect our listeners to the most targeted campaigns of the cycle and introduce them to candidates vying for seats at all levels of government.


Prior to the trip we conducted a grassroots fundraising effort and were able to secure enough resources from listeners, friends and families to pack up a minivan and hit the road. We ended up conducting interviews in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana, Colorado and Virginia. In addition to producing podcasts on the road we also appeared on local and national political talk radio to discuss our journey and provide analysis of the races we focused on.
