Introducing Casual Conversations with Interesting Characters

Casual Conversations is a new podcast where I share unscripted, unedited conversations that I'm having with some of my favorite characters. I'm so excited to connect with these amazing people and pick their brains.

This is the very first episode.

My guest for this episode is Cadar Mohamud, a Somali-Canadian storyteller and the host of the Digital Sisterhood podcast. We’ve both seen and heard each others content, but this is our first time speaking one-to-one.
