Status - Immigration & People

Podglomerate

A show about the people we love, the places we come from, and where those two things intersect. In each episode of Status, Matt talks to two people whose relationship has been impacted by immigration in some way. The immigration process can be difficult. Whether it's praying to win the H1B lottery, waiting to hear back on a green card or spouse visa, or traveling across the world every few months to see family, immigration is hard for anyone involved. Status is about how those difficulties can either distance us from one another further or bring us closer together. Status is produced by Matt Horton.
