Friday on Lake Effect: Helping Refugees, Life-Changing Songs, and Bubbler Talk

Friday on Lake Effect:

A former Ethiopian refugee is devoting his life to helping resettle other refugees. Plus, NPR’s Bob Boilen, on the song that changed his life, and those that shaped musicians. Later, a Wisconsin photographer drops into Luxembourg with a bit of a challenge: convincing strangers to allow her to take photos of them eating dinner. And our Bubbler Talk segment wonders just how the sausage is made.
