Illusion Pod with James Francis & Gabi Abrão

Why We Love It

James and Gabi explore the wellness of our minds and spirits. Each week alternates between a discussion episode between the hosts and a meditation lead by James. The duo also regularly hosts Q&A style episodes answering questions from growing in spite of imposter syndrome, managing our sense of self in the middle of social media culture, and the role of love in all forms.

Who Else Might Love It

The existentialist in you. James and Gabi are both artists and spiritualists, so naturally their podcast answers our deep seated questions from a creative and otherworldly perspective.
