On The Rough Guide to Everywhere podcast, we've heard stories from inspiring people who have travelled the world for work, pleasure, or to sate an incredible thirst for adventure.

But playwright, columnist and radio host Esther Armah says living between different countries has defined her entire identity.

In this podcast episode we ask Esther where "home" is, what it means to be a Ghanaian migrant in London and New York City, and what it was like to move back to Accra, Ghana, 50 years after a traumatic experience threw her world upside down.

Esther shares moving tales from her childhood and reflects on the complexities of identity.

We hope you enjoy this episode – don’t forget to let us know what you think. Rate us on Apple Podcasts and get in touch on Twitter using #roughguidespod!
