On Things We Left Behind is a story-driven podcast that explores the hidden afterlife of war. In what ways does leaving your country behind shape the life that you rebuild? That’s the question that the hosts, daughters of Somali refugees, seek to explain. The podcast takes an in-depth look into the lives of those who were made to start all over, and meditates on the things that are left behind in war’s wake.
On Things We Left Behind was one of the three finalists for LaunchPod 2019, the UK’s first podcast competition.
