  • A Daily Reminder of how Big the world is
    April 2, 2019 by yousefhisham from United States

    Everyone listens to this podcast for a reason, I listen to it everyday during my morning commute to university. The university i feel i am trapped in and waiting for it to end to be able to go out more and start discovering more of the world. Meanwhile Shelby Stanger and her Guests gives me a daily dose of discovery, she shows me the world from different prespectives, It’s like having a large group of inspiring friends and you get to know new one each day. Thank you Shelby , keep doing the good job you are doing. A huge shoutout from Egypt !!
