Journey to Wherever

Journey to Wherever

journeytowherever.com
Journey to Wherever is a weekly podcast by two mates who also just happen to be brother-in laws, getting together each week to record discussions that shouldn’t be left unsaid. Daniel Ribeiro and Ivan Siladji discuss many topics from lifestyle, philosophy, parenting, life’s general hypotheticals and business & entrepreneurship. Each episode is sure to take you on a journey filled with laughs, debates and (maybe) tears. We believe that deep conversations facilitate ones quest to better understand ourselves and others on this journey to being greater humans.
