Two Wars

Original Air Date: May 11, 2008

In episode 202, stories about two foreigners in the U.S. in the aftermath of two very different wars, trying to make sense of life here. A young Iraqi arrives in America after fleeing his war-torn homeland and embarks on a road trip to let Americans ask him anything they want, with hilarious and poignant results; a Bulgarian man in Rhode Island realizes that an ongoing argument with his American wife about lawn maintenance has to do with the life he left 20 years ago, on the other side of the Iron Curtain.
