    JOHNNY’S 2021 LATIN AMERICAN “EXPAT INSIDER” SEMINAR HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO BAD SCIENCE AND US GOVT STUPIDITY:
    The latest Latin American Seminar was scheduled for January 8th thru 14th, 2021. However, since the “usual suspect” Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pocket of big pharma) arbitrarily place restrictions at airports and impose new lockdowns (i.e. Soviet style house arrests), please stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates (estimated to be in late Summer). That will happen when USA and Latin America airports drop the Cov-idiot test requirements, scheduled to be when so-called "Herd Immunity" has been achieved. We’re on it and will keep you posted…    
     


    #1- “Nothin’ is for Nothin”
    DYK the USA has been giving free immigration software and training to Latin country immigration departments? Now, why would broke and unhinged Uncle Slam wanna do that? Duh! Obviously to keep an eye on the disturbing number of sheep who getting the hell out of Dodge and voting with their feet. Big Brother is exercising damage control and busily finding ways to keep track of the sheep who have left the barn.
     
    #2- What happens when Gringos and Expat overstay their visas:
    It used to be simple and not much of a problem. Up until very recently, if you overstayed your time you paid a little fine (per number of days overstayed) and all was forgiven. However, all this is changing for the worse. In some Latin countries most recently, immigration rules are suddenly being enforced to the letter. In Mexico for example, the immigration cops are stopping public busses and checking documents. And Gringos and Expats caught overstaying rounded up and deported (along with the illegals trying to sneak into the states). 
     
    #3- Beware of those “Latin Cupid” dating sites:
    Its ben said a million times that men are suckers for a pretty face. And gringo males, especially guys who speak no Spanish, are no exception and gullible to boot. They get scammed over and over again, yet they keep getting on those stupid Cupid dating sites hoping to meet Ms. Right. But from the many sad stories I’ve heard, it seems 80% of the women who post on Latina Cupid dating sites are in it for money. It’s a no brainer for those bad girls too. In fact its become a 24/7 job for some of them, stringing out as many stupid gringos as they can and hitting each one up for money each month. So today we offer some tips on how to wade through that minefield and spot the bad ones.   
     
    #4- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feel quite confident enough to dive in?

    #1- Going off the grid in Latin America:
    More and more expats are giving the utility companies the finger. In fact, I’m doing this show from one of those gringo owned, 100% off-the-grid places right now.
     
    #2- Who knew that Expat Eddie was a closet "Do Gooder":
     Today Expat Eddie shows us exactly how his unique, truly effective, and super successful “do gooder” project works:
    Meanwhile, hundreds of “do gooder” groups continually arrive in Latin America with good intentions, whose efforts generally have marginal or even negative results. So then, why did it take a wild and crazy guy like Expat Eddie (a guy who mercilessly mocks “do gooders”) to implement a vastly superior plan? On top of that, the amazing thing is that his plan is self-perpetuating and keeps on rolling along.  And being that he is Expat Eddie, he implemented the entire project from the comfort of his favorite barstool. Nope, he never had to lift a finger, break a sweat or get his hands dirty... 
     
    #3- Expat Eddie rides again:

    #1- “Neither a lender nor a borrower be”
    It’s time for a few words of caution when thinking about lending out tools and other items to Latinos.
    For a number of reasons it’s generally NOT a good idea to lend out your stuff to anyone including trusted gringos, even if it’s a good friend or neighbor who is doing the asking. But you'll see today why it’s an especially bad idea to lend stuff to Latinos, and near crazy to even think about lending your car to a Latino… unless of course it’s a junk. So listen today and let me count the ways you will regret being a "nice guy" lender in Latin America….
     
    #2- Things Gringos and Expats never ever consider when building or remodeling a house that will surely come back to haunt you 
    in a year or so:
    Today we talk about totally overlooked mistakes you never realized were mistakes at all while deep into a construction or remodeling project.
     
    #3- Ever consider driving through Latin American borders with your dog or a pet?
    Is it a good idea? Will it be tough going? Today we offer some tips and advice as well as a boots-on-the-ground story or two.

     #1- How to find a good Latin American MD, Dentist or Healthcare Clinic even if you don’t speak Spanish:
    There are hundreds of medical tourism websites in English on the web, some of them very glitzy. But just because they are glitzy and in English doesn’t mean they have 1st world standards or high quality…
     
    #2- Getting out of Dodge the RIGHT and the WRONG way:
    This is a heads up for Expat gonnabees and wannabees and others still on the fence:
     
    #3- What if you absolutely can’t wait to get the hell out of Dodge but your partner or spouse doesn’t want to go?
    It's a common dilemma. Can he or she be convinced or must you go south of the border alone and let him/her remain on the titanic?
     
    #4- Are you being given the ultimatum to force vax or lose your job up in the states?
    Today we have a boots-on-the-ground story that demonstrates how seriously idiotic this has become.

I will listen

If you like what is going on in the US why would you listen. Progressive or not.

Great info.

Let the haters find something else to listen to.

Johnny keep expressing your opinion. I will keep listening.

rcjal ,

He should rename this podcast

To “I hate Mexico and poor people”.

While I did learn a couple of things, like the origins of Semana Santa and their version of April Fools, he spends a LOT of time talking about his personal hatred of Mexico and his own legal issues. Sounds like he is lonely and needs someone to talk to.

Terrible

Do not waste your time on this podcast if you're looking for helpful info on moving to a Latin American country. I really don't understand the intent of this podcast. Seems he only wants to bash these countries and the selfish gringos who want to move there (his implication, not mine). Truly awful and hateful podcast- a complete waste of my time.

(April 1, 2021) Update- I decided to give this podcast another chance. Honestly it wasn't intentional, I downloaded it forgetting that I had already done so (and hated it) years ago. I got about 15 min into the most recent episode, and now it seems he's expanded his hateful rhetoric to include Biden and anyone who is actually taking the Coronavirus seriously- calling people who choose to get the vaccine "Covidiots" and advising on how to go to Mexico and get a fake vaccination card. I felt like I was listening to a right wing propoganda radio show. Wouldn't be surprised in the least if this guy gets a correspondent job with Fox News any day now, what a joke.
