How to Build a Village

by

How to Build a Village is a podcast about creating a community when you move to a new place. We’ll hear from people who have moved for jobs, love, or just the need for a change. In this podcast, we’ll talk about how to find the jobs, friends, schools, coffee places and whatever you need to make a new place feel like home. We look forward to hearing your story, too. I’m your host, Jill Martin Wrenn. I’ve been a journalist for the past twenty years. I’ve moved between New York, London, Atlanta, and back again. Along the way, I’ve met many amazing people who have created new lives in new places.

New York-based special events producer Suzanne Tobak tells How to Build a Village about her mother, Erika (Schirok) Tobak, who escaped from the Holocaust as a child on the Kindertransport in World War II.
