Around The World Here At Home

Join us for the monthly program that delves into international news from a local perspective. Each month, we’ll feature a different country in the news by interviewing someone who once called that country “home.” The Ozarks is home to an incredible blend of international people; this is where you will hear their stories and learn about their homelands. The program airs at 7:30 a.m. on the second Monday of each month on KSMU, and it’s hosted by KSMU’s Jennifer Davidson.
