Akashg ,

Great podcast!

It’s a great podcast and Kevin and Rudy are great podcasters!

Geeonuhh ,

💃🏽

I look forward to listening to this podcast every week because the topics are so on point to the people of our ~scattered roots~ millennial generation. The podcast has really made me think deeply (and start conversations) about my family and where we came from, but also about how I grew up in America while being confused about my identity. Keep it up! ✊🏽

💯

Was a little confused at first because I thought the “Scattered Roots” podcast would be all about my favorite hobby... gardening, considering the title. I bought some pots and seeds eager to dive in and find out tips of how to help my plants thrive. I believe one of the gentlemen used to go by “Plant Papi” on Twitter. What I found was even better! A podcast where two young Latinx men provide a safe space to discuss and reflect on cultural identity in today’s ever-changing world!? Imagine my suprise!
