The Picket Story

Hosts Lorenzo and Jake reflect on the nation’s past and present, seek out the long-dormant Jack and Diane, and search from the picket fence to the picket line in an effort to claim their slice of the American pie. The project's objective is to facilitate an open, non-partisan discussion focused on a diverse array of values and beliefs. They interview inspiring individuals from across this land to gain a better understanding citizens' and politicians' perceptions of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Join them on their mission to find common ground.
