Here's the backstory...
Since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, our world has been an increasingly difficult place of social unrest, loss of jobs, loss of homes, loss of self dignity, hyper inflation, the drum beats of war...too much turmoil and little stress relief on the horizon.
Against this backdrop, "Other Things with..." provides meaningful conversations with people who have struggles in life, yet continue to move forward in the pursuit of a life of hope and an optimistic future. Their stories are offered to you as a means to inspire and encourage you to move forward with your life and dream again, in spite of what comes at you from this life.
