World Cup Culture

The Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC is running a special segment they call the Immigrant World Cup, “Throughout the World Cup, we’ll select random matchups and hear from immigrants of each country about why their community is NYC’s best in food, music, and other areas.” The show encourages callers to celebrate their own culture while appreciating the others. Some of the questions being asked are below:

Why is your country’s food the best?
Why is your country’s music the best?
Why is your country’s nature the prettiest?
Why are your people the most beautiful?
Why is your immigrant community NYC’s best?
oh, and…Why is your soccer team the best?!

The Immigrant World Cup will continue throughout the world up on the Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC.
