Great Job

I have really enjoyed your podcast which you had talked with 2 Syrian, it has changed my perspective related to Syrians in a good way. And also it is fantastic that you guys are providing these things in a clear English. I hope you will do much better.

Keeping up with Turkey

I live in (and am from) the U.S., but lived in Istanbul during the summer of 2016. I fell in love with the city and hope to return for a longer period of time in the future. I’m excited to keep listening to this podcast to keep up with what’s going on in Turkey!
