    This is the End, But Not Goodbye - EP 147

    We have unfortunately reached the last episode of the AGDW podcast. What an absolutey bitter sweet moment. Both of us are eternally grateful for all of the love, support and dedication everyone has shown us over the past three and a half years. While we are sad the podcast has come to an end, we aren’t going anywhere! We we will continue to give you fun and educational (slightly) content about living in Germany, however from now on it’ll be via our brand new YouTube channel! This last episode is a retrospective of sorts as we look back on the past 147 episodes and give you insights about the production of the podcast and what it’s meant to us. Once you’ve completed the episode feel free to come check us out here on YouTube!

    The ”Lost Episode”: Culture Shock - EP 146

    The ”Lost Episode”: Culture Shock - EP 146

    Here it is. The one you've been secretly hoping for, but for which you will regret actually receiving. Here is the infamous "lost episode" of the AGDW podcast. This was meant to be the original 2nd episode of the entire series, a little over 3 years ago. At the time, we had the bright idea of recording two episodes every time we met up. This meant, by the time we recorded the second episode that day, we were a bit...how do you say...full of beer and whiskey. The result is an episode that we both felt was so bad that we never released it and recorded an entirely new episode to replace it. The actual topic is culture shock and involves us reflecting on the main differences we experienced between the USA and Germany. Please, be warned, this is not a good episode. We're releasing it now as an odd treat for those of you who have been with us from the beginning and have asked whether or not we'd ever release the "lost episode." Well, unfortunately, here it is!

Great show guys!

I really love the podcast. The mix between new Ideas and reappearing formats is fun to listen to and seems to be always well thought out. As a German living in an international dormitory I really like listening to the impressions we germans make on foreigners and also what things that are normal for me are like in other countries. I really like the way you narrate and your voices are great to listen to. The only thing I always find hella annoying is the section about writing a review on Apple podcast, since I always forget to do it, so here it is now;) But seriously, great work, keep it going. LG

Hilarious and Helpful

My husband and I moved to Berlin 3 weeks ago from Washington, DC. We decided to move to Germany about 8 months ago and since then I have been soaking up everything i can about being an expat. I only found the podcast about a month ago and have since listened to a large chunk of episodes. The podcast is not only incredibly entertaining and engaging but also gives some awesome tips for anyone who might be transitioning to Germany. As someone who has listened to a number of podcasts about being an expat, this provides a fresh perspective and unique insights often missed by most of the others.
