Wide ranging and always substantive

Practical strategies based on lived field experience and in a digestible 30+ min conversation is perfect for the busy professional and student of dev alike. Torrey keeps the convo moving teasing out specific learning and major moments of clarity from her guest while also weaving in her own international dev/humanitarian experience. A4A is a reliable podcast that keeps me mindful of what actually matters in this line of work - centering communities and being an intentional colleague and supervisor.

Broadening my impact!

Aid for aid workers is refreshing and relatable! Torrey’s interviews with diverse and experienced guests provide insight on topics that tend to be unique and helpful in this line of work. I’m often in situations where her tips and guidance are useful and I frequently send episodes to colleagues that face similar challenges. Good for professional development, yet a fun podcast for traveling and commuting!

Really Helpful

I appreciate Torrey's insights into the peculiar struggles in this industry. I listen to a number of management podcasts, and many of them are helpful. However, none of them address this specific field. And it has its own set of issues!

Aid for Aid Workers provides lots of great help for this specific group of careers.
