Yesterday I mentioned that my guest-episode for Serial Box’ Bookburners went up; today I say a bit about what prompted it over at Serial Box’ blog. A taste:
During my time abroad I’ve watched with mounting shame and horror as the country I called home turned ugly. I’ve watched the millions of Syrians struggling to survive invasion by escaping into other countries get called “cockroaches” and “floods,” things to be either exterminated or defended against. Borders are much on my mind – as well as the question of who’s allowed through them, when, how, and what they get called once they’re on the other side.
Only about as spoilery as the episode’s cover, so no worries on that score; I hope you’ll give it, and the episode, a look.
