Where Are You Going? - New York

April 5th, 2016

Episode 1227 of 1484 episodes

One question - Where are you going? - yields countless surprises about the lives of strangers. We hear from a pigeon-catching drug addict, a woman who is married to her cat, a man dicing with death in his day job and a mother who is travelling to see her daughter who has cancer. "It's not supposed to be that way round" she says. These unpredictable encounters come together to create a unique and fascinating audio portrait of New York City.
