America is an amazing place. There are millions of people throughout the country, and each person represents a story. The story of America is written every day, but unfortunately, being able to tell your store depends on your access to the media. There are many stories in America that simply go untold, and many reporters are uninterested in covering these stories. Doug Levitt had a different vision. He wanted to find those unwritten stories, and more than ten years ago, Doug launched a major project.
Doug Levitt started his career as a foreign correspondent. He traveled around the world reporting exciting news stories from around the globe. Doug loved his job, but he longed to learn more about his own country. He knew that there were thousands of stories throughout the country that were not being told, so in the early 2000s, Doug launched the Greyhound Diaries.
The Greyhound Diaries is a project like no other. One day, Doug stepped on a Greyhound bus, and the project started. The Greyhound bus system is essential for poor people around the country that want to travel. Doug wanted to reach the poorest Americans and tell their story, so he decided to come to them. Doug has spent more than a decade on Greyhound buses, and he has traveled more than 70,000 miles. During each Greyhound trip, Doug interviews people throughout the bus. These stories formed the backbone of the Greyhound Diaries.
Doug loves writing songs, poems, and stories, and on his Greyhound Diaries website, he regularly writes a new post. During each bus ride, Doug finds a new story and transforms into a new artform. Doug has written and recorded numerous songs for his project, and he has even released two EPs. He believes this project will shed light on the untold stories of America. The Greyhound Diaries continues to grow every year, and recently he started getting media attention throughout the United States. People are falling in love with the Greyhound Diaries.
