Useful & Practical

Surprised to be the first review! I think that in the current, rather abstract pool of podcasts... this is a very practical resource for Americans Abroad. Thank you for making this and please don’t stop! I think it would also be great to include some younger entrepreneurial influencers here something a little sexy, spicier. Just a thought.
