Points in Between
I have listened to the first episode and I am hooked.
It’s so important for Americans to understand what life is like for young immigrants going to school in America. The interviewer, Shane Carter let’s their stories unfold without a lot of deep prodding from her. I know when listeners hear these stories they will have empathy for the young people. We need better communication of other’s life challenges in order to fight the Xenophobia and racism we live under with today’s US government. Thank you Shane for getting this out!
