In the course of a lifetime, we lose all sorts of things: objects, memories, even people. But sometimes we find things, too. And when this happens unexpectedly, it can seem like a miracle. In Anna Willis-Collier's story, a spilled cup of coffee connects a family separated by time and distance. A long-lost leather jacket connects Scott Schultz to one of his childhood idols. And Ewa Chrusciel loses a sausage to airport security, but discovers a secret history of international lost and found. Hosted by Theresa Okokon.

A change of place, temporary or permanent, can transform our perspectives - and our lives -forever. A bathroom remodeling project transports Lorena Leonard to her childhood in Medellin during the Colombian drug war of the '80s; Kelli Dunham finds herself in a not-so-ordinary boot camp in the middle of Florida's swamps; and Angie Chatman crosses racial boundaries during a turbulent flight. Three storytellers, three interpretations of NEXT STOP, hosted by Theresa Okokon.

It takes only seven seconds to judge someone. It takes even more time and effort to change our opinions of others. An unusual character gives Jessica Furtado a life lesson that restores her confidence - and her voice. Sofia Colombo-Abdullah learns the power of her name and rethinks who she is. And Chris Ko searches for the meaning of home, a simple idea that gets more complicated the harder he thinks about it. Three storytellers, three interpretations of "Quick to Judge," hosted by Theresa Okokon.

From a birthday party to a wedding ceremony, a reunion to an unexpected meeting, special events can create lasting memories. As a young boy in a holiday play, David Dean Bottrell discovers his lifelong passion after stealing the spotlight; over twenty years after penpalling her brother's Navy buddies, Juli-Anne Whitney Jensen finally understands the impact of her letters; and Don Picard's marriage ends up on the front page of his local newspaper. Three storytellers, three interpretations of SPECIAL OCCASIONS, hosted by Wes Hazard.
