PRI's The World: 05/31/2016 We hear one refugee's response to discrimination she's witnessed in Europe, and we also hear the lengths that Thailand's military rulers will go to shut down dissent. Plus, do you know the difference between a phizzwizzard and a trogglehumper? Those are words you would encounter in stories written by Roald Dahl. In honor of the centenary of the author's birth, a special Roald Dahl dictionary has just been published in Britain.
PRI's The World: 05/30/2016 Today, we ask why Memorial Day can sometimes feel awkward for veterans. We also get an update from Guantanamo where pre-trial proceedings begin for the self-described 9/11 mastermind and his alleged co-conspirators. Plus, we hear music from a New Zealander whose work could be described as "Americana," but he says this kind of music doesn't belong just to Americans.
PRI's The World: 05/27/2016 President Obama visited Hiroshima today, making him the first sitting US president to do so. While Obama didn't apologize for the nuclear attack on the city more than 70 years ago, he did call for an end to all nuclear weapons. We ask our community of veterans their reactions to the president's trip. Plus we learn about a new generation of Japanese students who are trying to make political protests more a part of everyday life, and a Russian trying to save an endangered indigenous language in Japan called Ainu.
