Fresh Alternative

While most of the big podcasts are passing around the same guests from entertainment and the intellectual sphere, this podcast offers important voices who we might not otherwise hear from. Rana does a great job of curating, and extracting insights from unique guests who are doing interesting work and effecting communities and the world. Thanks, Rana!

Deep questions for deep connections

I love how Rana asks her guests questions that go deeper and invites them to share more of their story - things you wouldn't find on their website or on other interviews. I was invited to be a guest and as a podcast host and frequent guest - I really enjoyed our conversation and shared stories about my life that have not been asked on other shows.
