Stories of people going home to places they've never been before.
- Twenty-six-year-old Jose William Huezo Soriano—a.k.a. Weasel—grew up in Los Angeles. Under new sentencing laws, he got deported to his parents' home country of El Salvador, a country he has not seen since he was five years old. He has no memories of the country, no immediate family there, and people have a hard time understanding his Spanish. He records an audio diary of his life in exile for radio producer Joe Richman, part of Joe's Radio Diaries series. (26 minutes)
