The Global Sail Show        

Hosted by TK Kapurura

This is a 7pm talk show presented on the first Wednesday of the month. Through live conversations, I interact with immigrants and refugees from across the world. I encourage storytelling through interviews and reflections. The narratives help inform, educate, and entertain the community. The community can be motivated to appreciate strangers in the shared space where every human being is valid and dignified. We promote knowledge, understanding, awareness, kindness, and appreciation of humanity. We also get to listen to fun facts about any country, global music, cuisines, and cultures. Please tune in and have fun! 



Every First Wednesday of the Month, from 7 PM to 8 PM
