Best podcast for anyone who lives abroad

This is my favorite podcast on expat life. Sundae is super knowledgeable, but also relatable. Her passion for helping people better their lives shines through. She offers concrete solutions for overcoming the many challenges of expat life, but also life in general. Also love the guests who contribute to make this show a must-listen for anyone who is living abroad and dealing with the complexities of a mobile life. A great bonus is: no annoying commercial breaks to skip through.

Best podcast for global mobility & life challenges

Sometimes solo, sometimes with experts from a wide range of fields but always somehow relevant to Expat life. Sometimes mobility specific, sometimes personal development oriented but always entertaining, informative and over too soon. A must listen to!

Sundae has saved my expat life!

I've learned so much from Sundae's podcast--about how to thrive as an expat, but so much of her advice is helpful even if you've never set foot outside your home country. She and I share similar backgrounds--growing up in rural mid-America, finding love abroad and now raising cross-cultural kids--so I feel like she really speaks directly to my challenges living oversees. Thanks, Sundae!
