About This List

Some people have a need to step outside their passport/home country and experience the world firsthand. When we do this, our perspective on everything is forever changed. These podcasts give us a view of different places, cultures, and people globally through these invaluable foreign eyes. Refer to Plato's allegory of the cave, smile and listen on.
  1. We podcast edit and love talking about it with people all around the world doing different aspects of podcast editing. There is also a podcast editing newsletter: sign up at www.stephfuccio.com. It's a sound exploration that includes DAW comparisons, effects tips in different podcast editing tools, community events and Steph's own podcast editing continued education journey.
  2. Greg Jorgensen and Ed Knuth have been knocking around Bangkok since the turn of the century. Exploring dark corners, eating amazing food, and interacting with fascinating people, the two have gotten to know and love Thailand's capital in all its confusing, mysterious glory. Every week they chat about topics near and dear to those living here, those visiting here, or those who are just curious about what it's like to live in Asia's craziest city.
  3. You don't need to sell all your stuff and jump on an airplane to find out what it's like to live or travel as a foreigner in Asia! Join the oddly and aptly named Big and White, two expat ladies who have already taken the plunge, as they chat about the joys and sorrows of moving to a new culture and sticking out like a sore thumb. Whether it's discussing the finer points of driving in Kathmandu traffic, chatting about stomach parasites, or reminiscing about the time they accidentally asked for placenta instead of salt, you're guaranteed to learn something.
  4. Life doesn't have a script. At least, it doesn't have to. Hosts Katy Sewall and Tiffany Parks explore the challenges and joys of moving abroad and moving home. Whether you’re living overseas, or not — or not yet — join us weekly for unadulterated conversation. Get to know Rome. Laugh at our embarrassments and insights. Most of all, imagine the possibilities for your own life (and meet some famous authors along the way).
  5. Café Seoul is a time travel discussion podcast that dissects and reviews time travel films. We try to forensically reconstruct timelines that we did not see on screen applying various time travel theories to figure out what had to have happened in order for what we see on screen to have happened. It’s a lot of fun to do, and we hope it’s equally as fun to listen to!From 2013 to 2017, Café Seoul was a Korea-based expat-lifestyle podcast. Co-hosted by a duo of expats from North America, each episode dealt with a particular hot-button theme or issue. Café Seoul at that time discussed recent news, answered listener questions, and interviewed interesting people all for the sake of intelligent discussion with a dash of humor.
  6. Shining humour, love and light on Chinese life. For those living, working or travelling in China or interested in learning about Chinese culture, language, expat life and foreigners perceptions. Live, work, travel, teach, speak Chinese, do business and have fun in China! Join our international team for an inside look into Chinese life as foreigners living, working, crying and laughing in China with family, children and friends. A light hearted insight into all things good and bad with a little bit of extra wit added on top. With regular special guests from across China and creative educational games thrown in for fun, this podcast is a must for those interested in learning more about the middle kingdom or just wanting a good giggle. China Jedi is not a political movement or nationalistic front to spread the religion of the Jedi. It is for "normal" people, talking about "normal" things, answering "normal" questions to feel and be less "normal". Tune in, turn on and may the smile be with you!
