From Mecca, Calif. — to Moscow, Maine — America's highways and byways criss-cross a continent of mysteries, eccentricities and really great stories. Join NPR's Neal Conan and his guests to discover the real America — as we skip the interstates and take a road trip off the beaten track.

Guests:

Mark Singer, author of Somewhere in America: Under the Radar with Chicken Warriors, Left-Wing Patriots, Angry Nudists, and Others. Writes The New Yorker's "U.S. Journal."

Calvin Trillin, originated "U.S. Journal" in The New Yorker. His latest book is Obliviously On He Sails : The Bush Administration in Rhyme
