Emi Kodama grew up in Canada but her roots lie in Japan. In this dreamy podcast she invites you on a journey through her inner world that winds past memories of her grandmother’s house and the one she grew up in to eventually make you reflect on your own room and the world beyond. Find a comfortable spot and let Emi’s voice transport you.


Emi Kodama groeide op in Canada maar heeft haar wortels in Japan. In deze dromerige podcast neemt ze je mee op een reis door haar gedachtewereld, die via herinneringen aan het huis van haar grootmoeder en de plek waar ze opgroeide uitkomt bij filosofische bespiegelingen over je eigen kamer en de grote wereld daarbuiten. Zoek een comfortabele plek en laat je wegleiden door Emi’s stem.
