Humans of Earth
About This Show
Join host Kristen Hovet as she interviews people from around the world -- to highlight their lives, their work, what gives them joy, what brings them sorrow, and what inspires them.
It's a way to make the world smaller and bridge the "us versus them" divide through shared stories of ourselves and what matters to us.
Pay attention to your own responses as you listen -- what do you like, what do you dislike, what do you agree with, what do you disagree with? Step into their shoes and see the world from their perspective.
"I am human, and nothing of that which is human is alien to me." -Terence
