James Spring

James Spring is a contributor to This American Life.

His stories have also been featured on Re:sound, Radio Ambulante, and Atlantic Public Media’s Stories from the Heart of the Land. Much of his work is based in Mexico and the border region where, sometimes, he finds people who've gone missing.


This hour: an isolated village experiences rapid cultural change, a "border blaster" transmits totally unregulated radio programs from Mexico into the U.S., and a tiny frog causes trouble.
