Wild: What Does It Mean To Be Home?
Yes -- COVID finally reared its ugly head and hit our Buderflys family, making us turn to podcasts that center around life during the pandemic. And believe us, there's no shortage. Making clear that it's tough for everyone, but saying "we're all in the same boat" just doesn't resonate. Really, we're all in different boats on the same ocean. In episode 1, award winning New York Times and LAist writer, Erick Galindo takes you inside the life of Daisy Figueroa, a college student who was forced to go back to her childhood home. Rather than wallow, she transforms and creates her own business, Hood Renovationz, redefining and elevating spaces and the standard of living for people in her community. Her candor and deeply personal story had us in tears. Tears of love and happiness, the very best kind.
