How are the things we're talking about being talked about somewhere else in the world?

At a time when the world seems small but it's as hard as ever to escape our echo chambers, Rough Translation takes you places.

A preemptive five-star review
I'm convinced most of the problems we face are because of lack of communication which comes from a lack of understanding. I'm looking forward to this podcast. I hope it helps.
Everything NPR does is GREAT
I am an NPR addict, and coming from an immigrant Spaniard family growing up in Venezuela, then marrying an American and living in the USA, with a parenthesis living in China for three years, I understand that truly understanding each other at a deeper level than just simple translation is key. So looking forward to this podcast.
Sounds great - where's the goods?
