On day one, meet the team and watch them start their journey! They all try Wawa for the first time, have a Disney singalong and talk about their plans and hopes for the next few days.

On the ground in Pittsburgh, the team hears from the local chapter of The Socialist Alternative, meets up with the Fridays for Future chapter and learns about fracking, plus what the Green Party of Allegheny County is working on for 2020 and beyond. A stop at Randyland and they're off to the next location!

Days three and four feature Akron, Ohio, and South Bend, Indiana. The team stays on a farm in Indiana, talks to community organizers and community members at the Summit Artspace in Akron, and learns from locals in both locations which Democratic candidate they think will fight for the biggest changes in their communities. 

The team made it to Davenport, Iowa, and they're hungry for a caucus! First they check out the field offices of Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, speaking to volunteers from the campaigns before they head to a real life caucus. Watch the chaos unfold during the caucus, including news about the app preventing results to be available days later. Jessie, Aasha and Jon discuss if the caucuses are worthwhile and unpack all they learned on their journey.
