Valuable Insights

This podcast, and its bonus content especially, is so powerful! The vulnerability of all participants in this project is both refreshing and revealing. I absolutely love the team’s writing and I can’t wait to hear them read more of their personal, poetic work!

Well worth the listen

HomeBound is beautifully constructed and wonderfully thoughtful. Through both content and form it gives you pause; It asks you to not only consider but appreciate the range of experience and depth that intergenerational conversation engenders. Thank you for this authentic and important podcast.
