Thoughtful and Inspiring

Richard’s interview style is affirming and encouraging. He does a great job guiding each person’s life story, faith story, and vocational journey. Creates a space in which Asian-Americans of faith can share their experiences and inspire others.

More pls!

So glad I decided to listen to this podcast. How amazing is it to hear the journey and stories of people who you would normally not have access to. Richard does an excellent job of asking the right questions and navigating the listener to get a full scope of things.
