People looking everywhere to find a place—any place—where, for once, they don't have to be the odd man out.
We return to our story about Abdi Nor from 2015, with some big news about his life today. When we first broadcast the story, Abdi was a Somali refugee living in Kenya desperately trying – against long odds – to get to the United States. Then he got the luckiest break of his life: he won a lottery that puts him on a short list for a U.S. visa. But before he could cash in his golden ticket, the police started raiding his neighborhood, targeting refugees.
In these dark, combative times, we attempt the most radical counterprogramming we could imagine: a show made up entirely of stories about delight.
Stories of other universes that are just like our own, but with one small difference.
For the holidays, stories of families finally addressing the thorny thing they’ve never really talked about.
