Series produced by Lovin America

Series image

A weekly half-hour program with writer/storytellers Scotte and Toni Burns, exploring the Heart of America, seeking and sharing stories of her deep and abiding loves - of one another, of the things we do, and of the American places we call home.

Travelers, especially motorcycle “longriders” like Scotte and Toni, often say that, “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.” Their delighted search for America’s thoughts about life and love follow that same road. Lovin America doesn't offer advice or the 10 Easy Steps to anything, but instead, brings out the wit and insights of love's diverse expressions, as told through American history, culture and the people they encounter all along the America road. These are the tales of love in, and of love with, America. Within are many laughs, a few deep thinks, and the perspectives of Americans of every stripe and hue about what makes our lives together matter. The wisdom of America’s people and their many roads to Happily-Ever-After are revealed over miles and days as Americans are asked what it means to be happy, what is our place in the world and with each other? What does it mean to be in love in America today - with our mates, our lives, with our deepest passions for place and purpose? Riding along on this quest, readers and listeners also learn the wonders of the American highway - who makes the best chili, the worst drivers, the most profound memorials and the funniest local events? Be renewed, as Scotte and Toni constantly are, by the inspiring power of Lovin America!
