Extraordinary Stories of Ordinary Life

New Podcast: Weasel’s Diary, Revisited


In this podcast episode, we’re looking back at a This American Life story we produced in 1999: Weasel’s Diary. Jose William Huezo Soriano – aka Weasel – is a 26-year-old Los Angeles resident who gets deported to his parents’ home country of El Salvador, which he has not seen since the age of five. In this podcast episode, you’ll hear Weasel’s original audio diary, and an update from Weasel in which he talks about his life over the past 15 years.
