This is a bit off my usual topic, but I wanted to share my favourite podcasts with you. A colleague told me about this series some months ago and I have been completely hooked ever since. I have laughed, cried, been amazed and jumped with joy in the company of these podcasts – and I am always counting the days untill a new episode is released.
The series is called Strangers and is from KCRW’s Independent Producer Project. Strangers is produced and hosted by my fellow Dane Lea Thau (in English), who lives in the USA. This is how Strangers describes itself:
“Since the beginning of time, strangers and strange places have given rise to our wildest dreams and our deepest fears — and to the greatest stories on earth. These days, as we fly around the world, or the Internet, we come into contact with a hundredfold more strangers than our grandparents did. This series … is the about the strangers we meet, the strangers we become, and the “strangeness” we might overcome when we find ways to connect in the modern world. It’s about travelers, seekers, dreamers, lovers and warriors. It’s about fateful moments, bad dates, long lost friends, life-saving kindnesses, and those frightful moments when we discover that we aren’t even who we thought we were.”
Some of the stories that stuck with me are the story about Franky, who ended up spending 20 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit and the story about Lyena, who survived a life-altering fall and finally found peace in the midst of tragedy.
Go have a listen and make sure to stop by their facebook page aswell to get insider info and see photos of the interesting people sharing their life stories. I subscribe to the podcasts via iTunes, but you can also find them directly on their webpage.
