Beautifully Spoken

I love this podcast <3 On episode 3 and I cannot stop listening. There are so many aspects of this story that I can relate to as a refugee that landed in Canada from Nicaragua. It’s funny, sad, loving and engaging all at the same time. Can’t wait to finish all the episodes.

beautiful!

Such a beautiful podcast. My father is also an immigrant (though not a refugee and not from Cab). The imitations reminded me so much of him and made me laugh! The stories he tells of his life in the "old country" facinated me as a child and yet felt so distant and mysterious. Apart from that this is a breathtaking story about the relationship between father and child, a hearthbreaking illness and grief.
