52: Internet: Brendan Davis, A Colocated American Expat Film & TV Writer, Producer, Director and Podcaster
In this podcast episode we chat with Brendan Davis, an American expat who has lived in China for many years. Brendan is a Film and TV Writer, Producer, Director and fellow Podcaster. His podcasts are: If I Knew You Better, Big Fish in the Middle Kingdom and How China Works. Brendan somehow has kept grounded as has been involved with some pretty spectacular creative projects globally. Okay, to be honest, he is a bit crazy, good crazy, as his website, https://www.crazyinagoodway.com admits to. The kind of crazy that you want in your life and in your earbuds.
In this conversation Steph and Brendan chat about how his move to China changed what he did online, how he is splitting his time now that he has decided not to work IN China but will continue to keep a home base (and an Internet connection) here, and how he cultivated his crazy in a good way online persona while being a deep, thought provoking and may I say, wonderful human being.
In this podcast episode we chat with Summer Rylander, an American expat who has been living in Nuremberg, Germany since 2015. Summer is a freelance food and travel writer with a fondness for cooking, reading, daydreaming, procrastinating, and taking long walks with podcasts. Her latest droolworthy publication in Culture Magazine is about Swedish cheese (yes, it’s a thing!). When Summer gets writing hungry, she also posts about food and cooking on her blog, Eat Something Go Somewhere.
Summer and Steph met on the @WeAreXpats rocur account, geeked out hard about many things living abroad and geopat oriented so much so that they have started a new creativity podcast together called “Creatively Complicated”, where they discuss the messiness of their own creativity. Additionally, they will be discussing “Global Soul”, the Pico Iyer book that Steph mentioned about halfway through the episode, in the Bookish Expats Podcast on June 24th.
