Resettled: Wes Alum to Launch Virginia Public Media Refugee Podcast

Resettled is a Virginia Public Media (@VPM) podcast hosted by Ahmed that aims to uncover the refugee resettlement process through the stories of those directly experiencing it.

Launching on July 3rd, this six-part podcast series showcases stories of refugees as they adjust to their new lives in Virginia. These personal stories are woven together with useful teaching moments about the resettlement process. The season will consist of thematic episodes, each of which aims to bring the listener into the daily lives of refugees through field interviews (at home, work and school), personally-recorded audio diaries and reflective studio interviews.

Here is a teaser from our episode about education.
