Incredible!

The stories that are shared in this podcast are nothing short of incredible. They have flipped my views on their head and made me question my status and privilege as an American who doesn’t have to live in America’s Borderlands. It gives me so much hope that, in the midst of human suffering, there are so many people defending the humanity of those who so often feel denied of it. This is an amazing window into a seemingly different world... everyone should give it a listen!
