I am a huge fan of Anung's podcast The Introvert's Bubble. Although I am not an introvert I do have introvert tendencies. So, Anung's gentle but blunt and practical episodes on how to be comfortable in your own introvert space instead of trying to be the vocal, talkative extrovert that is highly rewarded in many cultures (and our own, in the U.S.). I am a quiet extrovert, despite what my content creation catalog may suggest. Because I do need people around me to energize and am vocal when the spirit strikes me, people often think that when I am quiet I am hiding something. Nope. I just sometimes need space and time to think and calibrate a situation. This podcast helps me make peace with being this kind of extrovert.
So when she asked me to come on her new podcast, I don't wanna fit in, of course agree. Anung is a true Geopat, she is curious about the world and the cultures and thus people in it. This made her living abroad questions insightful and interesting for me as a guest. I hope you enjoy this episode.
A few weeks after I moved to Berlin, Germany, Shaun, Host of The Germany Experience (formerly Expat Life Germany) asked me if I wanted to do a playful German idioms episode with him. Of course I said yes. And this episode is the result. Oh my gosh, he pulled out all the cow, poison and train station stops (toot toot) to test me in my A1 German language level guessing of what a few common German idioms meant. This was a delight beyond delights to do. Thanks Shaun!
Although I don't usually give specific expat lifestyle advice on Geopats Podcast, when Rohith asked me if I'd like to come on his show and chat about this, I jumped at the opportunity. I'm always interested in looking at expat life from different angles and reaching (maybe even inspiring) other people who are thinking of hopping over to another country.
In this mini episode Heather breaks from her normal format of talking to expats in Sweden to ask me a few questions about life as an expat in China.
Three Expat Podcasters share their unique experiences from outside their passport countries. Tune in to hear how our experiences (Steph Fuccio, Greg Jorgensen, and Eric Olander) are similar and different from each other and what advantages and challenges we face as expat Podcasters.
Everyone Has a Different Path When Learning a Language ll ft Steph from Changing Scripts
Azren has a podcast and a YouTube channel and I am a huge fan of both. So it was a pleasure to talk about our very different language learning goals (him: speaking, me: reading) and methods. I appreciate so much that he wanted to compare both of our approaches instead of judging either of them "right."
