Interlochen Public Radio is pleased to announce a new eight-week series where we sit down with residents who moved to northern Michigan from across the globe. 


It’s fitting that we’re calling the show Our Global Neighborhood, as it takes news consumers into the lives of their neighbors who decided to reside in this part of the world after experiencing a much different life in another country.
