Maeve In America: Immigration Irl

The Annie Episode: Annie Moore Room?



In an historical love story for the ages, Maeve flies over the Atlantic, ferries to Ellis Island and wanders around the Lower East Side - all in search of our guest today, Annie Moore. Well, the ghost of Annie Moore, the first immigrant through Ellis Island in January 1892. There are parallels and shadows of Annie’s story in so many immigrant stories, including Maeve’s. Like, Annie married a German man who worked in a bakery, and Maeve’s favorite place to meet guys is in bakeries. This episode is funny and fascinating, but it’s sobering too -  as we hear the echoes of anti-immigrant attacks get louder and louder.
