Love the Pod

Always find the pod to be insightful, pushes the bounds, and forces us to have the difficult and uncomfortable conversations that truly leave us with some questions for introspection - and of course, sometimes, it’s all banter and laughs, just typical of our fun-loving SALONE. 🇸🇱🇸🇱

Love. Love. Love.

Vickie Remoe is engaging, brilliant and brings on highly fascinating guests to the show. As a Sierra Leonean living in the diaspora, this show connects me to home and my heritage. Even if you’re not from Sierra Leone, you could gain valuable knowledge about this country’s special history and culture.
