Immigration feat. journalist Mickey Kaus, immigration attorney Kathy Khommarath, and comedians Johan Miranda and Laura Crawford

Happy to release the podcast of our 10/25 show on immigration.

Journalist Mickey Kaus and immigration attorney Kathy Kommarath join comedians Johan Miranda (Bridgetown Comedy Festival), Laura Crawford (Buzzfeed) and your hosts Lou Perez and Toby Muresianu for a good and pointed discussion on the always-contentious topic.

This time around, we throw some figures into the mix with some charts on the overhead. You can see them below:
