An illuminating set of takes on the diverse cultures of the US.

I found this podcast helpful in broadening my understanding of our newly emergent diversity as a nation, in particular new groups and cultures who are making their presence and influence felt more and more, in our national lives.

I recommend a listen and especially if you are looking to better understand and continually prepare for our inevitable future as a more culturally-diverse nation.
