 Ep 67: Rebroadcast of Over There Podcast, the one before it morphed into Virtual Expats | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 02:27:35

Racism is explored in this episode via The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah’s geopat lens AND English teachers in Taiwan experience circa 2004. We also cover slow fast food, inspiringly fluent Chinese language speakers, Chinese New Years boyfriends for hire and more expat and geopat goodness for everyone. NOTE: This is a rebroadcast of Virtual Expats episode 60. While I recoup from a nasty change of season cold and catch up on studying for my next Mandarin Chinese language test (HSK 3, December 2nd!), I want to reach back and look at how this podcast has evolved over the past season. This is the last episode from the last season, when the podcast was a segmented mammoth of expat topics and such.

 Ep 63: Sowmya: Data Scientist & Computational Linguist | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 48:20

Virtual Expats Podcast website, YouTube Channel, Virtual Expats Amazon Affiliate Link Subscribe to Virtual Expats Podcast on : iOS , Android devices, RSS Sowmya Vajjala is a Data Scientist, a Computational Linguist and one of the most intelligent and down to earth people you will ever meet. She is from India, lived in Germany for her PhD program and then taught at Iowa State University in the U.S., which is where I met her. She has since moved to Toronto, Canada, where she was during this conversation. Personally, she has impacted my life in ways I am only beginning to understand. But that is all explained in the podcast itself. Her perspective on if living in different countries impacts people’s online experiences is very different than what we have heard so far in this podcast. This honest, matter of fact approach to the messiness of online life as it currently exists is, frankly, refreshing. I think you are going to appreciate this very different point of view on social media, geographical movement and why we do what we do online. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Music courtesty of Damon Castillo, https://www.damoncastillo.com/ Song "I Hope You Figured It Out" on the "Mess of Me" album.

Virtual Expats Podcast website, YouTube Channel, Virtual Expats Amazon Affiliate Link Subscribe to Virtual Expats Podcast on : iOS , Android devices, RSS Have you ever been inspired by someone online, contacted them, met them in person and was even more impressed? Yup, that's the story of how Ronald and I met and it happened in just a few hours. I was listening to his Creativity Roots Podcast and loving it. The rest of the story is in the intro, so I don't want to spoil that part. What I will say is that we met at just the right time. I struggle greatly with accepting my creativity and he wears his like a favorite tshirt. He also has a heavy online presence, for both personal and professional reasons. And with that presence came opportunity, responsibility and love (oh wait until you hear his jokes!) Thank you Ronald for reminding me how freeing it can be to embrace who we are without judgement both on and offline. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Ronald's Creativity Roots Podcast Website:  https://creativityroots.com/ 54:00 Macklemore kid video: https://youtu.be/17WC8H_Ugm4 -------------------------------- Music courtesty of Damon Castillo, https://www.damoncastillo.com/ Song "I Hope You Figured It Out" on the "Mess of Me" album.
