Where is home? What is "Home?" More than 250 million people live outside the country of their birth- a scale of separation and migration that our species hasn't experienced since our ancestors took their first steps out of central Africa. Long-understood notions of home, family & culture are quickly evolving- sometimes in ways that can seem frightening to people who have never lived overseas. Host Mike Shaw talks with the fascinating people blazing this new trail for humanity, discussing their reasons for leaving their places of origin and how their identities are evolving as a result.

Awesome

I think your podcast is a great way to empower the global citizenship that has begun! Helping people to build a home with a community of likemindedness is essential and I think it’s great you started with China. Can’t wait to hear more.

The stories when 'Home' become more meaningful

For people who travel a lot or those who left their city and country, home is not always where they were born. It's interesting to hear the stories of the expats what is the home for people now and the meaning it has. Mike does a great job digging deep into the lives of people. Looking forward to listening to the new episodes!
