Episode 8: Nostalgia

Have you ever missed your tierra something fierce? Maybe you left when you were young. Maybe you’re the child of immigrants or political exiles, and you’ve never even been there. Maybe you’re undocumented and can’t go back. Pero you know you know that yearning: home.

Gloria’s right: La tierra te duele. La tierra te da en el medio del alma cuando tu no estás.

Today’s episode is about nostalgia. Homesickness. Diaspora feels! Featuring songs that remind us of home: of the struggle, the hard parts, the beauty, and the resistance. Music and links below.
