    Welcome to a groundbreaking town hall series with a twist. OZY travels across the U.S. to confront today’s most pressing issues by exploring the diversity of opinions among groups often pigeonholed for voting as a bloc.

Just what America needs

Real conversations with real people. What a concept! I love how this town hall approach breaks through preconceived notions while discussing issues America is talking about.
