Misunderstandings, misinterpretations and misinformation.  To infer, imply or conclude:  Sometimes it’s Lost in Translation.  Stereotypes, generalizations and associations- we may be a lot more similar than you assume or much more different than you imagine.   Austria or Australia? Columbia, South America or Columbia, South Carolina?  Dominica or Dominican Republic?  Please, slow down… I’ve only taken two years of Tongan, Thai or Turkish.

Storytellers: World traveler, Stephina Brewer; Arizona Daily Star writer, David Fitzsimmons; poet Logan Phillips; retirement community program director, Mallory Reed; writer and stand-up comedian Nancy Stanley; and more! This show is curated and hosted by Tony Paniagua.
