Let’s get listening … this week’s Podcast Pick is Radiolab, an unusual and highly popular podcast about curiosity, for the curious. In this week’s highlighted episode, The Girl Who Doesn’t Exist, we learn about a woman who can’t prove she exists.
In today’s episode, we meet a young woman from Texas, born and raised, who can’t prove that she exists.
Alecia Faith Pennington was born on a farm, homeschooled, and never visited a dentist or a hospital. By both chance and design she is completely invisible in the eyes of the state. We follow Faith as she struggles to free herself from one restrictive world only to find that she is trapped in another. In her journey to prove her American citizenship she attempts to answer the age-old question: who am I?”
Radiolab is a show about curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience.
