Drawing Borders—At Home and Around The Globe

Oct 17, 2017

“The Wall,” Brexit… the world seems to be moving towards more impermeable boundaries. This hour, we talk about what it means to draw borders.

We discuss about how attitudes have changed along the US-Mexico border in the age of “build the Wall.”

Plus, movements to build new borders-- we talk about the fallout from two separate independence referendums in Catalonia and Kurdistan. Both autonomous regions voted to draw hard borders with the countries they’re currently part of. But neither Spain nor Iraq is playing along--so what happens now?
