This is RadioActive Flight 9-26 with service to Chennai, Brussels, and Barbados.

This month RadioActive hosts Sarah Rosenthal and Ann Kane take you on a trip around the world.

  • First we travel with 13-year-old Ananya Shankar from Chennai, India to Bothell, Washington. RadioActive's Kamna Shastri documents her cousin's visit to America and tells how her idealized view of this country is tested on a strange Sunday afternoon.
  • Next RadioActive’s Rachel Lam talks to high school student Camilla Rask about her move to Belgium. We learn about waffle trucks and how moving away from home can expand one's world view.
  • Finally we fly you down to sunny Barbados with Ann Kane to meet master potter Winston Paul and learn how the pottery industry in Barbados almost crumbled.

Along the way, feel free to dance along to the tunes from each of our destinations!
