Best of Laura
Best of Meg
In September 2016, Meg had the opportunity to travel to Lebanon with World Vision to visit refugee camps. So when President Trump issued an Executive Order curtailing the U.S. acceptance of refugees, Meg did a whole show to sort through the news. She gathered experts from both sides of the aisle to help separate fact from rumor and listened to real-life stories. It remains one of the most important podcasts in our collection.
Nearly 20% of American adults struggle with anxiety, including Meg and Laura.
