Wonderful and heartwarming pod.

I found so many things in this podcast interesting that perhaps Chris didn’t intend. For example how memories, even among family members who experience the same thing, change and blend or merge over time; what life is like for some in Cuba today; what it’s like to live with someone who has dementia, and on and on.

Besides being very funny, and warm it was educational and I learned a lot. Great pod.

Great listen

Mr Garcia & his team do an incredible job weaving together one family's story in to the larger tapestry of Cuban and American history, from their Revolution to the present. It's a touching tribute to his Father, but also to his Mother and Sister, who are all working through the loss of Andres together. I enjoyed the run, and can't stop recommending this podcast to all my friends.

An Amazing Journey

This is one of my favorite podcast. Christian covers heartbreaking and tough topics with love and humor. An eye opening journey into one man’s life and how he is now remembered- by us all.
