🕊️ bonus: let’s talk about refugees — with Baharak

Refugee, asylum seeker, internally displaced person, migrant, immigration—the news is abuzz with some of these terms. But do you truly grasp the differences between them?

Join Baharak Bashmani and me as we fearlessly delve into this complex topic, breaking it down into simple terms. With Baharak's unique perspective as a former refugee, having experienced the entire journey from displacement to resettlement, and her work with the UNHCR assisting fellow refugees, she offers valuable insights.

In this thought-provoking episode, we explore:

  • Defining the terms, debunking misconceptions, and addressing stigmas
  • Uncovering the reasons why people flee and where they go
  • Navigating the process from displacement to resettlement

Our motto: No question is taboo, all questions are welcome.
