When Stoc, a 20 years old Romanian, moved to Maine for university, he was matched with a host-family. That's how he met his 81 years old soon-to-be host-grandma, LC Van Savage. Together, they have started a podcast, which aims at encouraging dialogue between generations.
They believe that 61 years may make people extremely different, but also very alike.

While Granny and The Romanian, were born generations apart from each other, both have seen criticism in their lifetime. What did it mean for each one of them? Can it only be positive criticism? How far can we go in addressing someone's flaw? Are we even entitled in doing that?
