Episode 15: Anatomy of a Road Trip

Featuring Anna Brones, Sarah Menzies, Kristin Blanton, Sarah Uhl, and Nic Annette Miller

In partnership with Subaru. Head over to Meet An Owner and follow @subaru_usa on Instagram to learn more.  

What makes a road trip? We wanted to know. So when five women departed for Marfa, Texas from various parts of the States, we sent out a couple of field recorders and asked these creatively-driven women to record their experiences along the way. Because between Point A and Point B-- detached from our standard routine, a lot of transformative and beautiful moments can take place.

This immersive episode is all about bringing you along for the ride, so buckle up and get ready to experience the road through the eyes and ears of traveling, creative women.
