No Sleep Till Democracy

America is in a moment of unprecedented division, but Ryan is doing the impossible—talking to people. In these episodes you will undoubtably hear from people you disagree with. What makes this podcast different is the common-ground approach that Ryan proceeds with. You’ll hear everyday stories ranging from Mayors to bartenders. Follow Ryan on his 50 State journey and learn how your neighbors and our communities may be the key to saving our democracy. If you’re looking for a shot of optimism about this country then 50 States of Mind is the podcast for you.

One of the best podcasts

Ryan’s podcasts are entertaining, informative, thoughtful and fair.
It makes you look within yourself and see how you can understand other points of view from fellow Americans. Stereotypes of people based on where they live, their religion and politics, on both sides can, be so divisive and unfair. The surprise can be, if people can calmly and respectfully, listen, we can learn so much from each other. I had the pleasure of meeting him during his travels, and his thoughtful, kind demeanor is exactly how he is. One of Best podcasts series ever!

Fantastic, Insightful Podcast!

Ryan’s journey across the 50 states is inspirational and eye opening. I love hearing he and his guest speakers’ commentary about the 50 states, specifically the unique experiences and conversations he had along the way. It definitely gives me a new perspective to think about. I love listening to it on drives to work and at the office!
