Human to Human

Human to Human

When we share our experiences – the good ones and the bad – we are vulnerable enough to connect on a deeper level with other people. It’s in those moments we feel more human. Navigating this chaotic world as a young person isn’t easy. The ups and downs can feel overwhelming, but the truth is this: we’re not alone. Human to Human is a space for intentional conversations about life and how we can help one another become our most true and authentic selves. Listen in as Jessica McDonald cuts through the small talk and dives deep with her guests to uncover their stories of loss, love and triumph.
