I’m your host, Lucas Land! I have spent a lot of my life learning how to have difficult conversations… often the hard way. Along the way I’ve met some incredible people and learned how wonderful the world can be when I try to understand others, get curious, and ask good questions! I currently live in Bolivia with my family and our dog Orie O. (You can follow him on Instagram at @orie.o_cookie!)
