CCM01: Meet the Hosts
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.“
– Nelson Mandela
We are Sanam and Monique, two stubborn feminists living with chronic pain who love to have deep conversations about life, activism, social justice, and the wider world. Many of the headlines that we see in the news don’t capture the struggles and behind-the-scenes stories of activism and organizing.
Our mission is to show you the incredible people behind the important work that is happening daily in the name of social impact and to help you understand how you can be a part of it.
As a Patron, you will support not only our work on the podcast, all costs that it needs to create this piece of art but you also keep supporting us to produce the best possible shows for you and invite incredibly important people to help us shine the light onto these issues and help support them.
Thank you so much for supporting us and our work, we love and appreciate you!
