Tales of Two Cities Podcast: Spectrums

on November 19, 2018

Everything’s on a spectrum! In the latest episode of “Tales of Two Cities,” we’ll hear from people finding their own place on spectrums of language, hookup culture, neurodiversity, and politics.

Reporters Maria Sestito and Edward Booth visit Richmond Hill High School’s new International Academy to learn about a sweet new way they are teaching English to newcomers. Brian Perlman reports how doctors’ diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder affect families and individuals with the disorder. Oaklanders talk to reporters Carla Williams and Annie Berman on election day about how their places on the political spectrum have and haven’t changed over the years. Finally, hosts Luis Hernandez and Ashvini Malshe interview Eddie Kaufman, who teaches a course on male intimacy and relationships, about how to find love and happiness.

Produced by Mickey Capper. Music by Kevin MacLeod.
