Leaving friends, understanding new schools, and figuring out kickball were all part of Elinor's shift from Israel to the US. We talk about the struggles of navigating the new-home transition, juggling two cultures, and just generally finding her voice and finding her way. Both the good and the difficult intangibles she inherited have been important in her journey of becoming the person she is today.

Join the conversation and hear what Elinor has to share about language, culture, and travel.

From sunny days playing on the beach to discovering the cold of snow in the dark Canadian winter, Guerdah Félix is well practiced in adapting to life's inevitable changes. 

Our chat includes (among other things) school life, childhood games, and books. Some of Guerdah's favorites include The Shack by William P. Young and And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.

Her languages are French, French Creole, English, Spanish, and a bit of German, and her first passions are philosophy, and psychology… all these interests moving toward that ultimate passion for understanding how people think, why we are the way we are.

You can find her on Facebook as @LadyGuerdah for more conversations.

Meet my friend, Ben Bryant, Broadcaster, TV/Film Producer, and world traveler. "I really treasure the time I have with people because I'm not really accustomed to having a whole lot of it."

We talk about family, movies, holidays, travel tips, and life in motion.

Growing up, I spent a lot of time around a table with family and friends sharing and listening to stories, usually over a hot cup of something.

Having experienced childhood in more than one place, these were great moments to reconnect with my communities, meet new people, and get reacquainted with those I hadn't seen in some time. It's a process I fell in love with, and so I'm recreating a version of it here.

In this very brief introduction, I tell you a little bit about what sparked this podcast and it's focus.
