India's Last Ambassador Car Rolls off the Line on The World for 5-29

If you liked our interview with comedian Hari Kondabolu yesterday you'll love hearing from our Twitter followers who chimed in with anecdotes about having their own names misunderstood and mispronounced. Marco samples some of the best stories on today's show.

While we're talking language, Spanish speakers don't send relatives to hospices because in Spanish, "hospicio" means poor house. As if that weren't shameful enough, the whole idea of hospice care is alien to many Latin Americans, many of whom are more likely to view the end of life as being in God's hands.

Plus, Tunisians are so angry about the garbage problem on their streets they're posting selfies taken in front of towering trash heaps. We'll find out whether selfie activism can clear up the mess.

And India's iconic Ambassador cars have come to the end of the road. The last one rolled off the production line last week. Marco speaks with journalist Siddharth Varadarajan, Ambassador owner and aficionado.
