Listening to Immigrant Elders – A Year-End Special from A Better Life? Podcast

In a difficult year, it’s been hard to find joy or laughter to sustain us. So Feet in 2 Worlds producers checked in with immigrant elders to see how they’ve been living through the pandemic.

What we found was joy, wisdom, life experience and plenty of laughter — from two Italian immigrants in San Francisco, to a Haitian couple in Florida, to a 93-year-old aunt in Bangalore, India.

A Better Life? is a series about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on immigrants across the U.S. Read more about the series here.
