UN/ROOTED is a podcast about home... the places we find ourselves living in and moving through, literally and figuratively, expected and unexpected, temporarily and long term. We touch on belonging, homesickness, gentrification, borders, the history of the places we love, and a lot more. In season one we go on a cross country move, explore homesickness, embrace a new city, weather unexpected surprises, and become comfortable with uncertainty and new transitions. We have conversations about home with friends near and far and hear the home stories of people across the country and the globe.

I don’t love packing or unpacking. But I love the in-between movement, the actual act of moving your body from one place to another. In this episode that touches on my drive from LA to NYC, we find a celebration of motion, movement, moving, migration, and all that comes along with it. In this episode we talk to writer, long-distance cyclist, and travel nurse, Mary Ann Thomas, a queer brown daughter of Indian immigrants, about home, home in migration, and home in movement.

"What is home? Where is home? How do you know you're home?" I begin to lay the groundwork for why I am asking these questions about home, I go back to the beginning, and I talk with a few of my family members…all of whom are seemingly more rooted and have a less fraught sense of what home is.
