An Escape

I love this podcast! I work from home right now so every weekday during my lunch, I’ll lay back, turn on an episode, close my eyes, and imagine myself living abroad. When I listen to these stories, I feel seen. I realize I’m not alone on this journey of trying to set myself up to live a life that is meaningful and perfect to me. The stories are raw, encouraging, inspiring, and all around amazing. If you aren’t subscribed to this podcast yet, you need to be!

Best listen in a long time!

Discovered this podcast when I searched all things “Black Expat” and I am so grateful that I stumbled across it! Number one, the host has the calmest, silkiest voice and the production quality is on point! Number two, the flow and pace of her interviews and editing is flawless! Number three, her guests will enlighten you on all topics related to moving abroad from the perspective of being a Black woman or WOC. Topics such as dating abroad, teaching abroad, launching a business, becoming a digital nomad—she covers it all. Thank you for providing your insight, advice, and amplifying our voices!
