Y’all rock, big thanks! Hi from Brazil 🇧🇷
This human life,to be more precise
I say this almost 100% sure: by the end of an episode, you are going to be touched by it, doesn’t matter if you just heard about a dude stealing birds from a museum or the life of immigrants trying to cross the borders. Every topic is unbelievable well written and it’s never boring to hear as long as you keep an open mind(and sometimes the x1/2 speed🤷🏻♀️). If you are looking for good content, not serious enough that you’re still able to relax listening to it yet very well produced and that actually says something and tries to give you a global view of events ,you are in the right place
PS: fangirl time- all the jornalists working here are my HEROS and I would be more than happy if I ever did a job similar to theirs. They get right to the point without neglecting the depth and the human side of the topic ugh you guys are amazing
I simply love that!
