Five-episode second season considers apologies in Japan, early childhood education in Ghana, and Jane Austen in Pakistan

Wednesday, June 6, 2018; Washington D.C. — Rough Translation is on new journeys to find out how things we're talking about in the U.S. are being discussed somewhere else in the world. Host Gregory Warner follows familiar conversions into unfamiliar territory, telling stories about people searching for a bridge from one worldview to another; the podcast goes to Japan, Pakistan, Ghana, Argentina, and Afghanistan to gain insight into issues like primetime feminism, universal pre-K, and what we really want to hear from a public apology.

"I think oftentimes people don't expect stories from overseas to feel directly relevant to their own lives," says Warner. "But we live in a globalized world. Every one of these episodes tries to shed new light on how we relate to these issues here at home."

The award-winning podcast returns June 13 with five perspective-shifting stories from Warner and correspondents from some of NPR's 17 international bureaus. Find weekly episodes of Rough Translation on NPR One, Apple Podcasts and wherever podcasts are available.
