From Brooklyn to Banja Luka - Aired 6 September 2006


This program is an endearing, yet unsentimental, 30 minutes of radio. Created by Radio Netherlands International, producer Dheera Sujan interviews an interracial, international 30-something couple. He's from Brooklyn. She's from Banja Luka. In this quasi-documentary, the couple talk bluntly about what attracted them to each other and what they now love and hate about each other. I first heard this program in Berlin, at a radio festival called Prix Europa. It had dozens of Europeans (and a few Americans) laughing and loving it.
