Watch Do it Differently

RoadTrip Nation's newest documentary, Do It Differently, is all about people who have decided to take the road less traveled. Should you follow the script handed to you or write your own? Do you take a risk or stick to the straight and narrow? These are questions without easy solutions, but there’s another one we think is worth asking even more: will you regret not answering them? Follow along as Christina, Darius, and Lia navigate their own aspirations, struggles, and curiosities in the midst of one of the most unprecedented times in recent history.
