Hope Is My Middle Name
A Tale of Two Truckers: Hauling Hope Across America
Truckers make the world go round, especially these days with serious supply chain disruptions, the ongoing crisis of the pandemic, and the ever-increasing importance of front-line workers. We talk with two truckers out there delivering hope and crucial supplies on rough roads, in bad weather, in the face of loneliness, isolation and invisibility. They’re risking their lives for us every day, and they have some great stories to tell. From a truckstop in Kentucky, we hear from Shelli Conaway who started Trucks with Room to Spare to bring life-giving supplies to victims of natural disaster; and in a forest in Ohio, I talk with my dad, Kevin Tucker, because it was riding shotgun in his semi, that I learned to love the road and all its unpredictable adventure.
