Hfan mom ,

You won’t want to stop listening!

Kay and Carolyn have a lineup here of amazing people just as they say. They will gently challenge your presuppositions and stimulate you to think of the refugee crisis in terms of the person you may see at the grocery store and not just a conglomeration of people clamoring for a different life. There is an authenticity about the stories that you will find gripping and as you listen, you won’t want to miss anything. When you finish, you would like to meet the people that Kay and Carolyn have chosen to interview.
