Homeland Insecurity Podcast from RAICES


Erika Andiola


Jonathan Ryan


In the investigative documentary podcast Homeland Security from RAICES and Neon Hum, we explore the roots of the Department of Homeland Security - and how we as a country have allowed tyranny to slip in through the back door. Host Erika Andiola, a leader of the Undocumented Youth Movement, asks how she became the enemy. The first eight episodes takes us from the creation of DHS, which emerged out of our nation's determination to stop the next 9/11, to the present day when we've seen families separated as the border, and now face a total ban on asylum. How did we get here? The ninth episode, a live discussion recorded at SXSW, asks: Where can we go from here? How can we change course and set our nation back on a path grounded in the principles on which this country was founded?
