Culturally educational via storytelling style

I was looking for a podcast so I could learn more about Pakistan. My boyfriend is Pakistani and immigrated to the States as a child. I am of mixed ethnicity and my family is American and Korean. I appreciated this podcast because the storytelling in all the interviews invoked such a humanness that the cultural nuances took back seat, and the feeling to relate and empathize was overwhelming. It was enlightening and I felt like I had a better understanding of Pakistan culturally and socially as an American and someone who comes from an Asian background. It ultimately concentrates on how Pakistan is progressing as a collection of communities that are trying to find ways to reconcile political turmoil. Very addicting and effortlessly causes you to think critically and thoughtfully via voices of art.

Worth subscribing to

Looks like an excellent podcast, listened just to the Zeb and Haniya episode and was convinced it is worth trying.
