    Things the USA Does Better Than Germany: Part 2 - EP 73

    As Americans living in Germany for many years, there is of course plenty we love about our new home. Throughout the run of the podcast, we have spoken at length about what makes Germany so great. However, we’re the first to admit it is not a perfect country (none are). This week we present to you part two in our series about what the USA gets right and indeed does better than Germany. Wow, 50 episodes later and we’re finally releasing a sequel!

    Our Favorite European Travel Destinations - EP 72

    Our Favorite European Travel Destinations - EP 72

    Who doesn’t love to travel around Europe? If you say, “me”, then this episode is probably not for you. This week we discuss our favorite travel destinations in Europe. These are the places we absolutely love to visit, again and again. Between the two of us, we’ve been lucky enough to spend time in the majority of the EU, which has given us insight into which cities are a “must see.”. During this episode, we’ll not only share which places we feel warrant a visit, but we’ll also let you know the two places we feel are overrated and should be skipped or at the very least, should be low priorities.

    Berlin vs. Bavaria - EP 71

    Berlin vs. Bavaria - EP 71

    The epic showdown between the German North and South is finally here: Berlin vs. Bavaria! This week we have a fun comparison between two of Germany’s most popular destinations for expats, Berlin and Munich. The two cities not only have a large physical distance between them, but they also lie far apart in terms of their culture, food, and the daily lifestyles of their residents. If you’re having trouble deciding which city’s vibe will gel with you the best, then this is the episode for you! To help us wage this battle between North and South, we’ve asked Aspen, the host of the YouTube channel AspenAbroad, to join us on the podcast. In one corner is our special guest who has years of experience in Bavaria, and in the other, the two of us who have called Berlin home for the past decade. Who will win??

This week’s episode will cover: strawberry themed amusement parks, enjoying a BBQ on your balcony, sex in Berlin’s public parks, German dentists, and much more!

Episode 72

Hey Geoff and Alex, I really enjoy listening to your podcast when I’m biking to work. Every Wednesday I’m excited about the new episode. I’m happy that I stumbled upon your podcast a little over 8 month ago. I’m an expat living in Berlin myself. I moved to Germany from Ukraine last year during pandemic, frankly speaking it was an interesting time to move to a new country. I just wanted to bring one thing to your attention. In the last episode (72) about your favorite travel destinations, Geoff recommend visiting Ukraine, which I totally agree with and am very grateful for recommending it, but he also said that Ukraine is kind of in the state of civil war, which made me upset. That is totally not true. Ukraine is in the undeclared state of war with russia, there’s no civil war in Ukraine, I just want to point that out, please do not spread the misinformation and help russian propaganda by doing so. I understand that as an outsider it might be hard to understand what’s actually happening in Ukraine, but please take my word for it as a Ukrainian. As I said I love your podcast and don’t have any hard feelings, but things like that are just very sensitive for me. I wish you success and a lot more episodes 🙂.

Best,
Pavlo

Awesome Podcast!

I accidentally stumbled upon your podcast on Spotify, I believe when your third podcast came and I’m still here listening to you guys as soon as the next podcast comes out. You are so relatable! When I was in 5th grade my (German) family decided to move to the US for three years. I love hearing about your reactions and adventures in Germany, a specially because they are so similar to mine back then… only switched around if you know what I mean (I was blown away, that school busses are actually a thing in the US)

Anyways keep up the good work! I’m already looking foreword to your next podcast:)
