Je Suis Not American

A Canadian journalist explains how he narrowly escaped being kidnapped by angry pro-Russia activists in eastern Ukraine by taking a uniquely Canadian approach. Also in the program, we hear why the vaunted U-2 spy plane is under the budget axe in Washington. We learn about the surprising link between Crimea and Mississippi Delta Blues. A Somali teen fashion designer in the US talks about her love for animal print hijabs. We remember a late American scholar who dreamt of being buried in Iran. And, old Atari game cartridges uncovered in a desert landfill in the American south-west.
