In this podcast episode, it was such a delight to chat with Drew Pells of On The Counter Podcast. If you’ve listened to the Geopats Podcast before you know the topics I usually talk about: sports is just not one of them. I do like the cultural side of the World Cup but that’s it. The first time I connected with Drew, I thought my lack of interest in his passion project, his sports podcast, might impact the conversation that we would have. But then I listened to the first few minutes of On The Counter and I knew that this would not be a problem at all. Drew is a funny, curious and friendly person who has a serious passion for what he does and can talk to anyone about anything.
On The Counter is a deep dive into football/soccer leagues. And although we talked about his podcast as part of his virtual life, it was only a small part of everything he has done online, pre and post moving abroad. Drew followed a familiar virtual trajectory (message boards for interest friends and dating, social media for keeping in touch with friends and later for promoting passion projects, and interest websites for news and information) even when he moved to Suzhou,China. But there were some surprises also. Am I going to tell you what they were? Of course not! What I will tell you is that what Drew shares about the virtual tools he has and hasn’t used since moving to China is more revealing than he might even realize.
