A unique voice telling important stories

I'm a subscriber to Borderline because I am passionate about independent journalism, and I think that Borderline, the community it represents, and Isabelle Roughol are all important voices that have great value in the world today. There are a lot of cliches I could add of course, but at the end of the day I know that the stories Bodeline brings to my inbox are ones that will challenge me to think in new ways. They make me ask questions I might not normally ask, and the stories call to my attention important themes and events that I might not otherwise be aware of.

Thoughtful and topical

Really thoughtful podcast which tells a unique and underrepresented perspective on some very pressing global issues that will shape the way our world looks in the future. Highly recommended for expats and global citizens alike.
