A Story Told Well: NPR’s Borderland
NPR recently launched a special series, Borderland, in which Steve Inskeep traveled along the entire 2,428 mile border between the U.S. and Mexico to report on the nuances of immigration and the relationship between the two countries. Here are the radio stories, which are so worth listening to if this is an issue that you’ve had a hard time wrapping your mind around, or not seen fantastic reporting on before. And here is the stunning visual intro to the series, which breaks the piece down into 12 stories complete with moving characters, all the numbers (presented very digestibly) and a lot of context.
Aww thanks! In case anyone missed this last week, do spend some time with the Borderlands project. There’s lots of great images by Kainaz and great storytelling throughout. -Emily

Goldaline, my dear, we will fold

from here / there is sun and spring and
green forever / but now we move
to feel / for ourselves
inside some stranger’s stomach / place your body
here / let your skin begin
to blend itself / with
