Summer in America

Listen in pop-out player

We’ll hear the gripping tale of two young brothers’ 4,000-mile journey to reunite with their parents in America.

Also on the programme: we’ll find out how a Catholic church in Texas is helping Central American migrants during their first few minutes on US soil. Plus, we’ll meet the man who visited 30 different American mosques in a month, and we’ll ask what he learned during his Ramadan road trip. Also in this edition, we’ll find out what’s behind the magic of a deceptive illusionist named Honesty. We’ll meet a Vietnam veteran fighting to memorialize his lost comrades. And we’ll learn what’s so special about the rum called rhum.
