Alexandra: Immigrant, World Citizen

Dec 1, 2022

Alexandra Bacalao is an immigrant from Venezuela by way of Canada who came to the US as a schoolgirl.

Now a physician and scientist, the podcast is the story of how she sees America through a complex matrix formed from the other countries where she’s lived, her experience in the US health care system, and her observations of US politics.

It’s a story of belonging everywhere, yet nowhere—and why she loves America.
