Love this podcast!

My family and I are in the process of fostering an unaccompanied refugee minor and this podcast has been a huge encouragement. Providing an inside look on the experience from a foster family and a brave refugee youth. Thank you for sharing your story!

Stories the world should all listen to

This podcast amplifies voices and perspectives from the refugee crisis that are often unheard and/or misrepresented. It balances these super important and inspiring stories with critical perspectives on the WHY behind the crisis and what we can do about it. It’s really a must listen for all, especially those who find it hard to extend empathy to “others”. Amazing work, Jaz and team!
