The best story you'll hear this week. Days Like These is a podcast told by one person telling the tale of how they lived through something wild. Sometimes funny, sometimes scary, sometimes both. We've got sharks and pirates, justice and injustice, drugs and recovery, love and hate, spies and thieves, triumphs and disasters. All we need from you is less than half an hour each week.

Came across this podcast series accidentally. Was so moved by the first story I heard, ‘Jaleh’s Drive For Freedom’. Jaleh Misaghi is a real inspiration. Definitely following. ❤️
Such a good and interesting podcast, what a shame about the sound track! Male caterwauling, ugh.
I’m loving these stories they are so real so warm. I get chills and heart swells. Really feels like something fresh and unique in the vast podcast world out there. Keep them coming !
