Love in America with Lovin America

Series produced by Love in America

Series image

South Dakota writer/storytellers Scotte and Toni Burns reveal stories of America's deep and abiding loves - of one another, of the things we do, and of the American places we call home.

Travelers, especially motorcycle “longriders” like Scotte and Toni, often say that, “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey” and their delighted search for America’s thoughts about life and love follow that same road. Love in America stories don't offer advice or the 10 Easy Steps to anything, but instead, bring out the wit and insights of love's diverse expressions, as told through American history, culture and the people encountered all along the American road. These are tales of love in, and of a love with, America - many laughs, a few deep thinks, and the perspectives of Americans of every stripe and hue about what makes our lives together matter. Riding along on this quest, listeners also enjoy a bit of modern frontier news and history from Lovin America's home in The Crooked Little House of Deadwood, South Dakota, and the unexpected discoveries of traveling America by motorcycle. Think Erma Bombeck meets Jack Kerouac on a Harley! Be renewed, as Scotte and Toni constantly are, by the inspiring power of Love in America!
