This is such a neat idea

I found out about this podcast during the height of the quarantines in the US in the Akimbo community, but I didn’t get involved until now. What a missed opportunity!

This podcast is a generous expression of connection when most believe things can’t get worse. The organizers of the podcast genuinely showcase the stories of people from all over the world, beautifully demonstrating how every single one of us holds a fascinating story.

Start listening to this podcast!

Great Idea For Us!

There is plenty of negative news around us, and these guys take our attention to fun and unique things happening in peoples lives. What a great idea!

Generous concept in uncertain times

The concept to interview as many people as they can during this uncertain time resonated, and I responded to their invitation. Now, so many interesting conversations to listen to, helping us all feel a little less lonely in this time of isolation.
