This week, we're bringing you a series of stories on refugees in Boise. The public radio show "The World" sent reporter Jason Margolis to Idaho to learn more about how refugees are making a go of it in the city. The three reports are part of PRI's "Global Nation," a program that tells real-world stories of immigrants in the United States.

Belonging is a fundamental human need. Equally strong is the drive to exclude. This is what Seattle University School of Law professor Sara Rankin calls "the influence of exile," which transcends individuals when powerful groups use laws and policies to restrict marginalized groups. The impulse to exclude is visible today in laws that criminalize and eject visibly poor people, including the homeless, from public spaces.

It's a long story, but here it goes: NPR Digital Services recently announced its transition from Limelight to Triton Digital to host its streaming service. Because both Boise State Public Radio's news and classical streams are hosted via NPR, we've undergone updates regarding our streaming player and URLs.
