Time in LA What do your parents and family/friends think of your “wild” adventures in Russia?  VII.

Very inspiring podcast

What I like about this podcast is that it’s not only educational but entertaining at the same time. And even though it’s main audience is people living abroad, any one could listen to it and be inspired by the stories of the guests.
