In Latitudes’ On the Move special we’ll sample many varieties of mobility. From self-deportation to dance, we’ll meet people who’ve spent their lives in motion. We’ll look at some of the ways people adapt to their new homes. We’ll hear from people escaping from, and commuting to, conflict zones. And we’ll listen to the sounds of things in motion — from guitar strings, to kite strings, to some feathered friends.
