A Student’s Perspective

There are many treasures throughout these episodes! For a course called, “Orphaned and Vulnerable Children,” we were given this podcast to go through to listen and reflect on the conversations within various episodes. I’m so blessed to have been exposed to such insights! This podcast’s scope of conversations makes each episode worth the time to listen!! It’s not just focused on one problem within the orphan crisis which creates a great atmosphere for tough talks and vulnerability! I would recommend to all! Caring for orphaned and Vulnerable children should be a Christina “thing” rather Everyone pursuit.

Worth the Listen! :)

The Think Orphan Podcast was super informative and engaging! Something I really enjoyed was being able to go through and hear some of the same speakers on different topics. It added a level of continuity while still providing new and intriguing facts with each new podcast. I also really enjoyed hearing how the Lord worked in each of the speaker’s lives to get them to the place where they felt the urge to help those who were also in need. Some individuals went very deep with great sentiment while relaying their memories while others just enjoyed sharing what they have been learning in terms of psychological advancements or even research breakthroughs. I thought it was a pretty healthy balance that gave people a chance to share their testimony while also being able to share their expertise.

One of the best podcasts

This is such an interesting conversational podcast. Some of the topics discussed in episodes can be heartbreaking and make you want to jump into action. This podcast will change the way you see and understand issues in our messed up world.
This podcast is well laid out and they use their time well so episodes do not drag on.
