Well produced show

What I like most about this podcast is how much personality shines through. With great reporting, storytelling, and engaging people, each episode is a well prepared meal that is quite tasty.

A dynamic, thoughtful duo take on the Filipinx Diaspora

I planned on listening to just one episode on my commute home, I ended up listening to three. Paola's voice is refreshing; she asks all the questions I'm pondering from the personal to the practical. I like learning about a culture's history without feeling spoonfed, and instead feeling engaged and included. Long Distance team, keep up the excellent work. High five and hugs from a fan and fellow Asian/AsAm audio storyteller <3

Solid

The amount of heart and hard work that Paola and Patrick put into this podcast is apparent. I’ve never felt so well-represented while simultaneously being taught so much about us filipinxs in the diaspora! Thank you Long Distance for making the earth underfoot a little more solid for all of us occupying liminal spaces.
