Shifting Perspective(s) Podcast

  • Publisher: Sia and Tommy
  • Total Episodes: 17

We always wake up to a world where things around us are continually changing, from technology and innovation to politics. Our ideologies continue to influence our thoughts on how we react to these changes. However, such doctrines are centered on perceived behaviors, which affect our decisions and reactions to these changes. As the world continually evolves around us, our perspectives must evolve along with it. Shifting perspective(s) is about changing how we view gender roles, values, ideas, and, most importantly, life. We hope to offer a safe place to discuss our experiences while learning from each guest. This Podcast is hosted by Sia and Tommy (husband & wife), who grew up in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Our Mission is to include stories from our upbringing and how they tend to affect us as we navigate life. We hope that listeners can open their hearts and mind so that we all can evolve together.
