All this month, I’ve heard about the campaign to spread the news of podcasts called TryPod. As I am a voracious listener of podcasts (you can see the complete list of my current subscriptions and other recommendations on my podcast page), I figured I ought to participate while I can. So I will post about one of my favorite podcasts every day for the last 9 days of March.
Maeve in America stars Irish-born comedian Maeve Higgins who interviews a different immigrant to the United States learning their stories and struggles in the anti-immigrant mood of present-day America.
Some favorite episodes:
- The Annie Episode: Annie Moore Room? – The tale of the young Irish woman who was the first person to be processed through Ellis Island.
- Thanksgiving Special: What even IS this holiday?
