Episode 100: Maeve Higgins and the Power of Immigrant Stories

Ali talks to author and comedian Maeve Higgins, who is host of the podcast “Maeve in America: Immigration IRL.” Maeve brings listeners “funny, beautiful and sometimes maddening immigration stories, told by the people who’ve lived them.”

An Irish immigrant herself, Maeve hopes to show native-born Americans how similar immigrants’ hopes, fears and dreams are to their own.
