A very expatriotic episode of the Radio Hour.
...Tania Grogan just wanted to live in a big city in the United States when she left Brazil three decades ago. She stepped off the plane in South Dakota, mid-January, and--curiously--she's still here, teaching English Language Arts to children whose move to the United States was significantly less voluntary than hers.
...Heather Mangan discusses the abrupt end to her time working in Niger as a Peace Corps volunteer. And was she responsible for a recent cholera outbreak in New York City? Circumstantial evidence suggests...maybe? (You’ll have to check out Episode 2.5 to find out for sure)
...Kat Burdine spent two years in Honduras helping to build OYE Honduras, a leadership program for at-risk youth. Oh, yeah, and she was almost arrested during the 2009 coup d'etat.
