Evocative and Unique

The perfect pod to turn on for my car ride home. A refreshing boost of social interaction in a time of lack. Each episode brings something new to the table and reinforces the idea that we are all connected. Love learning and relating to strangers from all over the world at the press of a button. Bravo
