How Different Can It Be?

Born in Derby, England. Moved to Kiwoko, Uganda at 6 years old and lived there for 12 years. Now in Palmerston North and keen to share what I've seen. My name is Joel Brown and trust me when I say that you are in for a treat when you tune into HDCIB. You and I will be chatting about how amazingly different the world is, in the simplest of ways, while being accompanied by only the highest quality music.
