Thinking critically about the immigrant experience with Little America

**Mark your calendar for Feminist Frequency’s 11th birthday party! This Thursday, May 21st from 5:00 – midnight Pacific time join at Twitch.tv/femfreq for guests, games, and giveaways.

This week on the podcast we are delighted to think critically about the Apple TV+ series Little America. The anthology, from makers of The Big Sick and Master of None, puts the immigrant experience at the center of its plot. Currently available to view without a subscription and already renewed for a second season, this series presents stand-alone episodes observing the story and life of an individual immigrant living in the United States. Join us as we take a look at several episodes, from the tale of a young boy left to run the family motel when his parents are deported, or a Nigerian college student in Oklahoma who loves American cowboy culture, to a Syrian refugee seeking asylum in the US so that he can live openly as a gay man, and explore how successfully Little America presents their stories.
