From deep in the south of Italy, a father and son’s coming of age stories, told in parallel.
Josh and his father Franco take you through the very different stages of their lives.

This is the first episode in a new series called This Is What a Generation Sounds Like—a collaboration between The Europeans Podcast and Are We Europe. It brings you personal stories from young Europeans across the continent, tackling a broad range of issues affecting them.

This series is produced in cooperation with Allianz Kulturstiftung, an independent not-for-profit cultural foundation committed to strengthening cohesion in Europe using the tools of art and culture. Find out more at

The episodes are all sound-rich audio productions, coupled with a visual interpretation of the story, merged into a new concept: a Visual Podcast. It is a new experiment we are trying out. Starting off with an audio-first story, we combine it with visuals that serve as a guide, accompanying the story through another lens.

Katz Laslzo worked with Josh to tell this story, and Josh’s voice will take you through his and his dad’s story. The illustrations & motion design are by Eddie Stok.
