The Recovering Expat Podcast aims to explore in depth some of the lesser known cultures and countries in the world by interviewing individuals who have lived in those countries for an extended period of time. The Podcast will delve into the history, geography, and language of world countries, as well as take a look at how globalism and technology are affecting the people of the countries. Host Mike Dooley is a returned Peace Corps Volunteer who lived in rural Paraguay for two years as a coach for elementary school teachers. TRE is not meant as a subjective understanding of these cultures, however. Instead, one must keep in mind that the lens through which we view these cultures so different from our own is impacted greatly by our own cultural paradigm.
