"The People We Know with Accalia Hipwood podcast tells the stories of individual migrants – their family’s heritage, how they found themselves living in a new country, the challenges and the triumphs. It highlights the human thread that connects us all, regardless of where we call home, and how life always has the ability to surprise, disappoint, delight and nudge us in different directions, sometimes through choice and other times through circumstance. The People We Know reminds us that everybody has a story worth sharing – and that these stories shape not only the storyteller, but the listener too".
