Freedom Up Close

A Podcast on Freedom

Freedom Up Close is the product of a long friendship. It is the combination of two ongoing projects: Nine to Freedom and Albinism Up Close. Both projects are related to albinism and visual impairment, but Freedom Up Close will be departing from content strictly related to those topics.

Freedom Up Close is an exploration of freedom in all aspects of life: finances, mental health, spirituality, and more.

Its two hosts balance each other out in this beautiful and entertaining dynamic relationship. Their back and forth interaction often leads to thought-provoking conversation, witty jibes, and lots of laughter. We hope you’ll join us for all of that.
