Welcome to “Where Do You Exist?”, a six-part podcast miniseries in collaboration with HBO and their new television series, Here and Now. “Where Do You Exist?” was recorded in front of live audiences in Portland, Los Angeles and New York City, where a diverse collection of thought leaders from different walks of life shared their most intimate stories and experiences of belonging, family, and identity.

Here And Now, from Oscar and Emmy winner Alan Ball, stars Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter. The new HBO series is a provocative and darkly comic meditation on the disparate forces polarizing present-day American culture, as experienced by the members of a progressive multi-ethnic family — a philosophy professor and his wife, their adopted children from Vietnam, Liberia and Colombia and their sole biological child — AND a contemporary Muslim family, headed by a psychiatrist who is treating one of their children.

Heartwarming

I love that these stories are diverse and address the struggle of finding and embracing one's identity in America.

Meh!

Unlike other podcast in similar genre, the speakers aren't very well read/prepared. Interesting topics, not very well executed.
