Freedom Up Close


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 all things related to freedom. We will have thoughtful discussions on financial freedom, mental freedom, spiritual freedom, and freedom in so many other aspects of life.
