The Finch is more than just a podcast. It's a perspective.

The Finch was born in Athens, Georgia in April of 2020, amidst the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was built upon a simple principle: dissect complex issues through a multidisciplinary approach. Each episode is a non-partisan, fact-checked perspective on an important world issue.
