We’re also joined by Jacqueline Soller to discuss the recently released movie, The Florida Project, directed by Sean Baker and starring Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince, and Bria Vinaite. Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his thoughts on the reality behind President Trump’s self-proclaimed prowess as a dealmaker; we’ll hear from a woman named Jialu about her experience of leaving her home country to pursue her education; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by indie pop group Zuli, from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.

Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
