Easy to understand and interesting topics!
Immigration is such a hot topic and also really confusing. I like this podcast because it takes a complicated issue that can be really divisive and political and clearly breaks it down to make sense of it all.
Informative and Enjoyable
I like how the podcast breaks down some of the issues that are present, in a way that I can undersrand and comprehend. I enjoy the fact that th information is informative, but not to robotic and overwhelming.
A Must Listen!
With all the discussion of immigration policy over the past few years, especially over the past month, Immigration Nerds offers a refreshing perspective on the impact our country’s border control has on lives.
Bringing to light things you might not have considered, this podcast is a must listen for those looking to understand the full picture of what’s going on in the current immigration climate.
