Fi2W founder and Executive Producer John Rudolph joined Brian Lehrer in the studio on Monday to talk about “What I Carried,” our new multimedia series using using sound, photography and text to tell stories about immigrants through objects that represent migration. People with immigrant backgrounds across New York called in to share their stories about the objects they or their parents brought with them from their home countries.
Check out John’s “What I Carried” story about a photograph of his grandfather who immigrated to New York from Russia in 1893:
