    Season 4 Finale: Expat Role Models

    Season 4 Finale: Expat Role Models

    Season 4, Episode 25. It's episode 100! The end of season 4! So many reasons to celebrate!
    To wrap up a season that ended up being released starting at the onset of a pandemic and seeing us all the way through to September, we hear from a variety of former guests, listeners, and expat friends from around Freiburg about who their expat/immigrant/nomad role model is.
    Whether real people they know, characters or creators they've enjoyed, or even just the plurality of those who have made big international moves before us, the people and stories shared in this episode provide a plethora of expats, immigrants, nomads, and travelers for us all to look up to and turn to in times of trouble.
    Although it can very often feel that way, you are not alone in your struggles during life abroad. Be it the people mentioned in this episode or the people who came on the show to mention them, there are examples you can aspire to - and who knows, maybe you're someone else's role model.

    Dating as a Foreigner in Germany with Justin

    Dating as a Foreigner in Germany with Justin

    Season 4, Episode 24. Dating isn't ever easy, but dating as a foreigner brings its own special batch of challenges. Nicole and Justin are two single Americans who have both been in Germany for about three years, and they're here to exchange their stories and perspectives on dating.
    Is it more effective to date in German or in English? Is it easier to date Germans or fellow internationals? What dating apps are common in Germany, and what is it like to use them? Are the gender roles different in Germany versus the US, and if so, how does that affect dating?
    Plus, both share the story of their most embarrassing date.

It is more important than ever that Americans living abroad participate in their civic duty and vote.

    The Downside of a Nomadic Life with Mahdia

    The Downside of a Nomadic Life with Mahdia

    Season 4, Episode 22. Mahdia left her hometown of Dhaka, Bangladesh when she was 19. Within a year, she'd settled into adulthood and expat life simultaneously in her new home of Wollongong, Australia. She loved her life, her friends, and most importantly, the person she'd become.
    When she moved back to Dhaka three years later, Mahdia quickly realized her new identity didn't quite fit in. As she'd wanted to get her master's degree in Germany, anyway, she sent off applications and within a year was back off to life as an expat. This time, she was living more of a nomadic existence. Her master's program took her to Germany, Argentina, and Thailand.
    Now back in Berlin, Mahdia is exhausted from the nomadic life. She shares why she's decided to settle in to life in Berlin, what she's gained from all of her relocations, and what she's lost.

    Travel Germany: Nuremberg with Shannon

    Season 4, Episode 21. It's another episode in the Travel Germany series! Let's learn about the hidden gem of Bavaria - Nuremberg!
    First thing to know: people in Nuremberg identify as Franconian first and foremost, although the city is technically in Bavaria. Franconia is a region in northern Bavaria and is home to many charming places, including Nuremberg.
    Today's guest, Shannon, has lived with her family for several years. They actually lived in Nuremberg years ago, moved back to the States, and missed Nuremberg too much, so they moved back. Through the years and various adventures with her husband and kids, Shannon has great ideas for how to stroll through the city, where to stop for the famous Nuremberg sausages, and which of the many festivals in the area to visit.

Great podcast - for expats and Germans alike

For me as a German native speaker living between Freiburg and Offenburg this is really a great opportunity to learn about the perspective of Americans who moved to this area. Please keep up the wonderful work!
