An award-winning daily show, “PRI's The World” brings one-of-a-kind international stories home to America. "The World's" coverage is provided by a global network of international journalists, including access to 250 BBC correspondents.
We're taking The World on the road today with a special show out of station KPBS in San Diego. Marco Werman and Global Nation editor Monica Campbell are co-hosting a special show that will bring you stories of life along the US-Mexico border. We'll go with a couple of Border Patrol old-timers as they reflect on the relative quiet of the California-Mexico border today versus the early 1990s. We'll also meet veterans of the US military who ended up being deported to Mexico. Plus, we'll hear about a Mexican who refashions American discards into art. Plus, we'll touch base with the cross-border musical group known as the Nortec Collective.
Surfing the tides in Brazil, Facebook and nudity, and a look back at the secret story of the last presidential visit to Cuba.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton solidified their leads in Tuesday's primaries. We want to know what Russians make of the frontrunners. Plus, President Barack Obama gets ready for a historic trip to Cuba, but is Cuba ready for him? Also, we get an update on the wreck of The Esmeralda, which sank off the coast of modern-day Oman in 1503.
Russia starts to withdraw its military personnel from Syria. We ask what that maneuver means. In Brazil, a former president tied to a corruption scandal may get a new job, working for the current president. Plus, we have the story of a popular sweets shop in the embattled Syrian city of Aleppo.
Over the weekend, Ivory Coast was the site of the third attack on a western target in West Africa — today, we'll ask a journalist in the region about the dangers there. We also hear why Israelis are confused by American election year politics. Plus, it's human versus computer in South Korea, for a game of Go.
Today, we go to a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina — with a sociologist from Turkey. We also speak with a radiochemist about measuring the fallout from Fukushima on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. Plus, we remember Brazilian percussionist Nana Vasconcelos, who brought the sounds of the natural world to contemporary jazz.
