After walking through a busy crowd in New York City, I realized I knew nothing about the people surrounding me. All the faces were that of strangers. I wanted to get to know the people around me. Where were they from? How did they get here? Who were they? I am using this outlet to sit down and have a conversation with folks who have stories to tell. I want to get to know others and what they've done in their lives. I've found that we have so much more in common than we have differences. This podcast are those conversations. americanyouthpodcast.com
