Migook, or 미국 사람, means "American" in the Korean language; the name of the show is a tribute to our life as expats. Our community is a mix of expats, travelers, and global-minded citizens. We value honesty over glamour, and we appreciate the authenticity of a heartfelt, living-room style discussion over coffee.

Relatable, chill and refreshing.

Loves me some Migook Monday with Jackson and April!

It’s so nice to tune into honest and relatable conversations about what it’s like to be an expat in Korea. To chat openly about the awesome parts and some of the not-so-awesome parts of living abroad and to know that as an expat— we all experience the same stuff in different ways! Thank you to the Tandy’s for sharing your journey with us! I look forward to your new episodes every week!

So relatable!

I always look forward to these being uploaded on Mondays. I listen at work while I organize myself for the week. I enjoy hearing your views of the world, whether it’s about Korea, travelling, or chatting about the regular ups and downs of life, you’re both very relatable and down to earth.
