Wearing Another Person’s shoes

One of the problems in our society is we don’t care enough, but Proximity is challenging us to change. Lexi and Zach do an excellent job bringing its listeners face to face with another person’s reality, experience and struggles. This builds empathy and motivates compassion.

Current issues come to life

I’m not much of a podcast listener but I have enjoyed this one. Zach and Lexi do a marvelous job putting flesh and bone on the issues presented. I have appreciated being challenged to look at something through another lens.

Heartfelt, real and exactly what’s needed today!

Zach and Lexi do an amazing job with this podcast and I am really learning a lot from each guest the bring on. There is so much to learn when we step out of our own world for a moment and put ourselves in someone else’s shoes. They aren’t afraid to ask the hard questions and they also provide the listener with tangible ways to make changes that will actually make a difference. Give them a listen you won’t be disappointed!
