Fun and Informative

As a Nepali who lives in the US it’s very interesting me to hear about how people from the US think of my culture back home and how they live in such an environment. Filled with jokes, puns and all sorts of intricate things about Nepal, it is a gem to listen to specially since this is the only podcast coming out of the region which focuses on storytelling and the events of day to day life. I have had a lot of good times where I end up laughing along with Big and White. I also love it when they get all geeky in their linguistic jargon. That has helped me reflect and learn in many ways about my own culture.

Fun and informative

As someone who hopes to live abroad in the near future I’ve really enjoyed listening and learning about Big and White’s experiences! Fun, upbeat and interesting.

Like chatting with your pals

Enjoyable podcast to sit back and listen to two relaxed women discuss the job they love in a country half a world away from where they grew up. Each episode has a theme ranging from culture shock or long travel days to language learning or how living abroad is or is not as they expected it to be. They both have calm energies but are still engaging and very genuine. Love them!
