Yesterday's Immigration - Ireland (EI 9 - Fr Joseph Ryan)
Immigration is a critical part of the American story, but for many of us, we are separated from our immigrant heritage by many generations. In this episode, we begin a series called "Yesterday's Immigration," where we look at historical immigration to the United States, in an effort to reconnect us with our immigrant ancestors. We are starting with the Irish. Villanova University's Father Joseph Ryan joins David to discuss the historical Irish migrations to North America, and the impact that the Irish community continues to have on the United States.
PS Apologies for the delay on the episode - our next episode will be up two weeks from today on November 22. We'll be back to our regular schedule in December.

Taking Care of Business...Students (EI 5 - Annie Marra)
When Cornell University's Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management recently reached out to its international alumni, it wasn't part of its annual giving campaign. Instead, Cornell was trying to make sure its MBA grads were getting the immigration support they needed in a climate where denials and processing delays are on the rise. Annie Marra, Associate Director of the Johnson School's Career Management Center, was the driving force behind this initiative. She joins David to discuss the results of her alumni outreach, as well as her family's incredible immigration story.
Dave is a great host. He’s engaging, knowledgeable, and explains complicated immigration issues in a way that everyone can understand. The guests are interesting and all have wonderful and diverse stories to tell. Love it!
