Cover image for podcast episode

We know what’s on your mind right now: the coronavirus.

And we know you, our cross-border audience, you’ve probably got one big question completely dominating your brainwaves: will our border close? Or, when our border closes, what exactly will happen?

So, we’re gonna hit the pause button on our normal programming and bring you some news you can use right now.

Max Rivlin-Nadler covers the border for KPBS. Max gives us the most up-to-date information he has as of recording time: 1:30 p.m. Thursday, March 12.

Port of Entry podcast branding

Port of Entry

Border people often inhabit this in-between space created by the separation and collision of two cultures. From KPBS and PRX, “Port of Entry” tells personal stories from this place — stories of love, hope, struggle and survival from border crossers, fronterizxs and other people whose lives are shaped by the wall. These are cross-border stories that connect us, brought to you by host Alan Lilienthal, producer Kinsee Morlan and sound designer Emily Jankowski.
