Description

Hi and welcome to our podcast That Makes 2 Of Us. The more we have talked to friends around the world, the more we realized we all are going through pretty similar challenges in life. So, together, we decided to create this podcast in the hopes of helping some of you who might be going through the same. During each episode, we will discuss a specific topic or challenge we all have faced or will at some point face in our life. We will have meaningful conversations, share our personal experiences and interview experts to give you the tools to tackle them all. Remember, no matter where you are or what challenge you face, you are not alone, because that already makes two of us.
