(A Pause) 1 MIN, 15 SEC

This episode marks a pause, of sorts, for this radio show. UnFictional is taking a couple months-long hiatus, to give us time to build something new and even better – something that will be re-born on the airwaves after a few months.

And, in the meantime, the UnFictional podcast will continue. So keep your eyes on the feed for that. They'll be a bit stranger, a bit darker, a bit less bleeped than what we usually put on the air.

To follow everything we're up to, you can follow us on social media: Twitter and Facebook.

Mrs. Daijogo 14 MIN, 5 SEC

Mrs. Daijogo was an unforgettable kindergarten teacher – so unforgettable, that as an adult, Hannah went back to her old classroom, to watch her former teacher work. But watching her teacher with adult eyes, Hannah realized that Mrs. Daijogo was teaching her students more than how to read and write. She was teaching them to exist in a hostile world. And the teacher was speaking from experience.

Hannah Kingsley-Ma is a radio producer, writer, and bookseller living in her hometown of San Francisco.
