In the podcast episode we chat with Evo Terra . Some of you might remember him from season 2 of the Bangkok Podcast with Co-Host Greg Jorgensen, However, Evo’s podcast history goes back much farther than this. In fact, one of his podcasts was the 40th podcast of all time (there are rumored to be about 700,000ish podcasts listed in Apple Podcasts right now) and he wrote the first Podcasting for Dummies books. We recorded this interview about the time of his one year reverse culture shock anniversary (exexpatsary?) returning to the U.S. after living in Bangkok, Thailand for a few years. He selected the book, Working With The Thais to talk about.
This book helped him understand the work environment culture clashes that he had when he first arrived in Thailand. Evo was someone who saw culture clashes and chose to learn what was happening and what to do to change himself to make his time there enjoyable for everyone involved. That is not to say that there weren’t bumps in the road, and that is where some hilarious culture clash stories make it into this episode. This is far from two Americans bitching about Asian culture: this is about being a foreigner in a foreign land (it would have been too cliche to use that other book title here, right?) and realizing that it is YOU that is the problem, not them.
