Eric & Milena was produced by Dheera Sujan of Radio Netherlands. This program is part of the international exchange series, Crossing Boundaries. We have an update to this story, somewhat in keeping with the idea that love *doesn't* conquer all -- since this program first aired, Eric and Milena have split up, we're sorry to say.
