BBC Pop Up heads west to Sioux Falls, South Dakota

The BBC Pop Up team has left Pittsburgh to drive west to its destination for December: Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Located on the Great Plains, the city is both culturally and geographically in Middle America. You would have to drive just over 1,500 miles to reach either Portland, Maine or Portland, Oregon.

That distance from the densely populated coastlines means South Dakota is also one of the so-called "flyover states" which most Americans have not visited and therefore know little about, beyond Mount Rushmore and perhaps the Badlands.

The BBC's first mobile bureau wants to change that by exploring the community's distinct culture and identity. We are asking locals what stories they want to share with a global audience.

Produced by Matt Danzico, Benjamin Zand, Anna Bressanin and Hannah Gregg
