Laura Spero is an independent producer, and founder of Jevaia International (www.jevaia.org). She has spent more than a decade in rural Nepal, where she has reported numerous radio stories and maintains a multimedia blog, www.allthepiecesof.com, which features many — many — unreasonable accounts of her trying to help out as a subsistence farmer. Laura’s blog series Between Worlds looks at how labor migration is changing ritual mourning in Nepal, and explores the role of culture in grief and loss.
The World is a public radio program that crosses borders and time zones to bring home the stories that matter.
