Story telling at it’s finest!!!!!!

Paola’s story-telling really takes you to the places she talks about.... it’s as if I am walking the same road, smelling the food, hearing the music, and in the same room she is in. Makes me miss home; makes me want to hear more stories. Listen. Subscribe. You won’t be sorry!!!

Feels like home.

Top-notch reporting, storytelling and production! Every episode has been engaging and informative, and I especially appreciated the historical context the first episode provided. I immigrated to the U.S. at six years old & didn’t realize how much I longed to hear my experiences reflected in this format until I started listening to Long Distance Radio! This is a show I’d also recommend to non-Filipinos who want to know more about who we are. Can’t wait to keep listening. ❤️

❤️❤️❤️

So excellent, I love it. Paola and Patrick entertain me, inform me and crack me up. I’m old, but this is a millennial voice I can really get behind. The storytelling keeps my hooked and I’m being introduced to music, food, film and voices with which I was not yet familiar. I love the flow and the style of narration, as well. Looking forward to much more!!!!
