The Live Episode: Feeling All the Feels

Maeve discovers she’s not the only 01 visa in town - stat queen Mona Chalabi is also an “alien of extraordinary ability.” Nationally acclaimed poet, Yosimar Reyes, talks to Maeve about his life as an undocumented immigrant, recalling his childhood fear of being deported and not getting to hear the latest Destiny’s Child album. Host of ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ Aminatou Sow gives the rundown on her immigration story - from Guinea to Belgium to Texas. Maeve opens up about her own struggle with customs and border patrol, to much laughter. Jokes about Jew-boos from Naomi Ekperigin provide our Cheer Up Charlie moment and to end, Emmy the Great soothes anxieties with her music.
