So glad I found this podcast!

Such great stories! It reminds me of This American Life except it’s international.

My new favorite podcast

This show is brilliant. I’m so intrigued by how they come up with the subjects for each episode. If you aren’t listening to this you’re missing out.

Introspective and eye opening

Rough Translation does a great job (i.e. well-paced, well-edited, thorough interviews) covering very personal stories around the world, in a way that helps you empathize with the individuals in every episode. The earlier episodes about race in Brazil and education in Ghana gave me a new perspective on how to look at my own country’s treatment of race and education.
