Where We Live: The Best Of 2018

Dec 31, 2018

As 2018 draws to a close, we’re highlighting some of the Where We Live conversations that have stayed with us. This show gives me the opportunity to interview really interesting people who are doing important work. Some of them remind us not to forget the contributions of Connecticut residents. Here are some interviews from this year that celebrates those people and their accomplishments.

  • Samite Mulondo, a Ugandan native and Connecticut State Trubador Nekita Waller.
  • Andrew Kahrl, Associate professor of history and African American studies at the University of Virginia and Dr. Gary Ford Jr., Assistant professor of Africana Studies at Lehman College.
  • Lynsey Addario, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, and Lhakpa Sherpa, a West Hartford resident who became the only woman to climb Mount Everest nine times.
