Must listen

Unshaming is a fantastic concept, bringing to light the topics we’ve learned to keep in the dark for no good reason. By creating a normal conversation around issues deemed „unnormal“ by society, unshaming contributes towards a more open way of thinking. Jordan himself sets an example by engaging with his interviewees in a remarkably empathetic way. His genuine, innocent curiousity leads him to explore topics like abortion or different sexual orientations in way that is profound but at the same time easy to listen to. The only thing that could maybe be improved is sound quality, although it is pretty good already.
