Grateful for this podcast. Keep up the great work.
Unique and engaging topic
I love the very specific and unique focus of this podcast. I feel like I am living vicariously through these stories and Chrishan is the perfect host. Keep the stories and tips coming!
This gives me hope
I listened to all the podcasts on a 3-4 hour car ride. Each story gave me hope and the confidence to find the peace I and my children deserve. What I appreciate is the attention to the pandemic and hearing how each country has responded. Although, I don’t necessarily see being able to expat anywhere from the US now during the pandemic, hearing how these stories on govt response in comparison to the US is heart breaking BUT allows me to see that it is the US that ultimately have the issue of being humane. We all deserve to be treated humane. I am gladly trying to find the place that will enable me to find that humanity and peace because of these stories. Lots of leads on where that might be on these podcasts. Highly recommend tuning in and being a subscriber.
