    Episode 92 - Month Of Love Pt. 5 (Series Finale)

    It's September for The Native Immigrants... so that can only mean one thing... It's the MONTH OF LOVE! A month of weekly shows celebrating all that encompasses the warm feelings of love! (Sigh)


    This year we’re going to be focusing on The Search For Love, as we’ll be joined by various guests sharing their experiences and what love means to them.
     


    For our Series Finale, we reflect on what we've learnt by looking back at the previous four weeks, and discussing all the key points from those shows, that have given us a better understanding on the Search For Love today. With so many amazing guests, and insightful conversation, it's only right that we show love to all who have joined us on this journey, and ensure we spread the message of love going forward!

     

    Special thanks to the awesome Niraj Chag for providing the special theme music for our Month Of Love!

Authentic and powerful at almost 90 episodes strong!

Right from the feisty ‘pilot’ show… ‘don’t interrupt me Jyojo B’ to the laugh out loud playful humour and tenderness of more recent episodes there’s truly something for everyone. If you’re ever feeling lonely or need a pick me up, there’s always something from every show that will lighten the load. Swami Baracus and Jyojo B stand the test of time and always make you smile.

Brilliant podcast!

I’ve just discovered this and am really enjoying it. The chemistry between you two, and the way you deal with serious issues while at the same time being so funny makes for the perfect combination!
