Mid-Americana: Stories from a Changing Midwest

Mid-Americana explores the history and identity of the Greater Midwest through the lives and stories of individual people. Our second season, Immigration, features eight stories from people who left their native countries to make a new home in the Greater Midwest. We ask our guests what pulled them from their homelands, what challenges they faced while making a home in the Heartland, and how they contribute now to a changing Midwest. Find transcripts, illustrations, and show notes at midamericana.com, where you can also join our email list and suggest ideas for a future episode or season.
