THE EVER DEADLY PODCAST
Amazing I love this podcast.
Strength, Resilience, Inspiration, Indigenous
Amazing Indigenous young women taking on a new journey sharing their raw truths, their funny stories, their concerns and worries of life, and being completely vulnerable. Thomas King said: “The truth about stories is that’s all we are.” This podcast embodies that quote - and stories are something we can learn from whether we are young or old, Indigenous or non-Indigenous, male or female...sharing and listening to others is crucial. These 2 young ladies are bringing stories to the listener and bringing other people’s stories through their podcast too.
You’re amazing Alicia. So proud of you and your sharing.
