Hi, it's good to be back with our American Road Podcasts, conversations with authors, fellow travelers and interesting people we meet along the way. My name is Foster Braun and I have had the pleasure of doing these interviews over the last five years but this is the first chance that I have had to get back to doing them regularly. In my professional life I have been a radio broadcaster for over 35 years on Detroit's Great Voice of the Great Lakes,WJR-AM, where I have been doing The Internet Advisor for the last 13 years.

I'm delighted to start the new series with Erika Nelson, a regular contributing editor to the Think Big column. It was fun to find out Erika's driving passion (pardon the pun) to collect the smallest replicas of the largest features she can find on the American Road. She has quite a collection and in the interview you will find how she started her fascination with the huge roadside attractions that led to her rolling collection. You can see Erika's treasures at The World's Largest Things.
