When Nan­cy Holten was 8 years old her mom put her in a mov­ing van. She fell asleep, woke up in Switzer­land, and she’s been there ever since. Nan­cy is big into ani­mal rights, crys­tals, and var­i­ous forms of nat­ur­al and holis­tic heal­ing. She’s also a viral sen­sa­tion: the Dutch woman appar­ent­ly so annoy­ing, her Swiss town denied her cit­i­zen­ship. In this episode we go to the lit­tle vil­lage of Gipf-Ober­frick to meet Nan­cy, talk with the town, and ask the ques­tion: what does it mean and what does it take to belong to a place?
