What To Expect This Season:

  • This show is a dialogue- Each podcast will be an open discussion between Phil and I, and our guest. We will examine the issues from all sides with the perspective of best practice in orphan care.
  • Weekly Interviews with Experts in Orphan Care- Each episode you will hear from those who are doing the work around the world, in the areas that affect vulnerable children around the world. We will discuss the issues surrounding the work our guests are doing, as well as, the solutions they are implementing on the ground. We will also get to hear about the different organizations they serve.
  • Recommended Resources from Our Guests- Phil and Kelly end each interview with the same two questions: “What have you read or listened to in the past year that has most impacted your thinking in the issues surrounding orphan care?” and “What one person has most impacted your thinking on how to best love and care for orphaned and vulnerable children?” You will be able to find these resources here at ThinkOrphan.
