Serving Stories is a podcast from Serve the City. We travel around the world to gather stories of volunteers doing small things together that make a big difference. Each month, we feature people who cross lines of poverty, privilege and prejudice to raise the kindness quotient in their cities. In the first season we focus on six different cities—Lisbon, Chesapeake, Berlin, Tallinn, Brussels and Pristina—serving stories of transformation, both big and small.
