Experience Sikhi Podcast

By Experience Sikhi
The Experience Sikhi Podcast presents real and inspiring stories from Sikhs who have navigated their way through struggles and have paved pathways for generations to come. By sharing their stories, our guests bring a voice to common (but sometimes stigmatized) topics in our community. By coming together and sharing honest stories – no armour, pretence or sugar coating – we aim to help our listeners learn and heal. The goal is to dig deep inside of us and share what is in our heart, mind, and soul.
