Our guest this week is journalist and Columbia Journalism School Professor Jessica Bruder. She is the author of ‘Nomadland’, now a major motion picture and Oscar frontrunner starring Frances McDormand, directed by Chloé Zhao. The book, and the movie, explores the subculture of older American workers, many priced out of their middle class life and with no pensions, who have given up traditional housing and are living in their RVs, trucks and campers. Modern nomads searching for temporary employment. Jessica Bruder spent three years on the project and 15,000 miles of driving — from coast to coast—following the community. 'Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century' is available on Amazon The movie ‘Nomadland’ will premiere in the US on Feb 19th 2021 on Hulu and in selected theaters. In other territories in March.
