    I loved this podcast.  I am a Salena Zito groupie.  I came by that status accidentally, but serendipitously.  It began back in … what did you say in the podcast – 2008 or so, when Salena Zito and Dr. Laura Brown started having discussions about the shape of politics.

    As a Salena Zito groupie, I am grateful to John Batchelor – easily in the top five of interviewers in all of media – for letting me (and the rest of his audience) listen in on on those discussions.

    As a child growing up in the 70s, I traveled east coast to west coast and back twice by car (pulling a house trailer), with my parents who were always chatting up the locals to find out what life was like there, what was on their minds.  In the mid-80s I read William Least Heat Moon’s BLUE HIGHWAYS, and enjoyed immensely his telling of a similar style of travel – by himself, but always telling the story of the locals, and traveling the two lane highways to find them.

    When I heard Salena Zito tell her stories, they resonated, as I recognized immediately her travel and information gathering technique.  Although I didn’t know it at the time, a groupie was born.  I even bought a Jeep Patriot in 2009 – in exurban Pittsburgh, no less – not knowing at the time that Salena Zito is a Jeepstress, and I’ve taken my Jeep on many a trip along two lane “blue highways” to see the sights, to hear the local chatter.

    My sincerest condolences on the loss of your 300,000+ mile Jeep companion, Salena.  She died a hero.

    Looking forward to more Main Street meets the Beltway (which I suspect will never in my lifetime understand Main Street).
