Season 4, Episode 6: Gimme The Asphalt!
Just about 200,000 of the estimated 3.5 million truckers on the road today are women – and that number represents a 65% increase over the last decade. Today we catch up with one of them, Ingrid Brown, a 5’2″ 50-something grandma who’s been driving a rig for over four decades. Calling from the cab of her truck, Ingrid, whose role has been deemed “essential” throughout the COVID-19 crisis, gives us insight into what keeps her happily rolling across the country as she surpasses the 4 million mile mark, looking forward to spending time with her family while simultaneously dreaming about her next journey.
