Episode details

Episode 03 is here, and we are talking about the lives of undocumented Americans with author Karla Cornejo Villavicencio. Karla and I were both trying to make this recording work with families, pets, creaky floors and loud microphones, so please forgive the occasions where real life showed up. It was just too good to cut. There are a couple places where I tried to re-record, but I didn’t want to get too far from the actual dialogue. Hope you enjoy this conversation (and Karla’s honesty, brilliance and laughter) as much as I did.

Meet Karla:

Karla Cornejo Villavicencio has written about immigration, music, beauty, and mental illness for The New York Times, The Atlantic, The New Republic, Glamour, Elle, Vogue, n+1, and The New Inquiry, among others. She lives in New Haven with her partner and their dog.
