My favourite podcast

I listen to every episode. It’s a great way to motivate myself to get out and walk -because I can listen to your podcast! It’s like having a good catch up friends.

Two fat expats

Thank you for a wonderful series of podcasts! I listen with avid interest--I was an expat child, Canadian, born and raised in Manila in the 50s and 60s. My daughter is now an expat in Jakarta. I so "get it"!
