Exceptional production!

This podcast is entertaining, interesting, beautifully produced and excellent all around. You’ll be so sad when you reach the end.

Exceptional!!

I have been searching for a good expat podcast as I consider the possibilities for myself. I tried International Living but found it incredibly flat and unrealistically upbeat. Expat Sandwich is an ecclectic mix of countries, people, history, tips and humor. I am really liking the non-question/answer format- I like the way the host sets up different points and then the guest meanders around it. The people selected as guests are bright and articulate which is an amazing plus. I'm pretty critical of podcasts so am exceedingly pleased to have found one that I look forward to listening to. Keep the episodes coming!! It would be nice if you found additional people who have make the expat jump solo - and maybe even old. I am almost retired and solo and am considering this for my next chapter. Thanks!

Excellent podcast

So good. Fascinating stories. Insightful commentary that would be nearly impossible to obtain by book. I'm glad I live here in America and have no plans on moving. Not that any Country would want my 50 year old self! I appreciate that no corny jokes are attempted. Just good insight and culture differences discussed. I hope the podcast hasn't come to an end. There are only 21 episodes!
