The incredbile Amanda Bates (theblackexpat.com) joins Chris and Jerry for a winding conversational journey through forced subjegation to choral interpretation, the complexity of racial issues, defense of the Olive Garden, and so much more. It’s an eye opening, mouthwatering episode!
It’s been about a year of the quarantimes at this point, and it’s fair to say we’re all dealing with some stress. Chris & Jerry unpack what this prolonged stressful experience is doing to us individually and collectively, and share some (hopefully) helpful ways to manage our stress.
Chris and Jerry get to delve into the unknown with the marvelously talented Sundae Schneider-Bean (www.sundaebean.com) to decide whether or not planning is overrated, and explore the losses (both good and bad) as well as the gains that come with moving into the expat lifestyle – all seasoned with an occasional Scottish brogue!
Joining Chris and Jerry in the virtual studio is the one and only Michael Pollock! Co-author of the most recend edition of “Third Culture Kids: The Experience of Growing Up Among Worlds,” Executive Director of Interaction Internaitonal, and an all around amazing guy, Michael purveys wisdom and heart, and we’re fortunate to capture some of it right on our own humble little podcast.
We all need to eat… which makes eating a phenominally borderless tradition that highlights both variety and commonality. Join Chris and Jerry as they discuss the best, the worst, and the culturally nuanced details of food.
Chris and Jerry are joined by Christian Phillips (a rather clever man in the realm of linguistics) to discuss the ridiculously important role languages play in how we interpet and interact with the world around us… and learn why some words became “bad”.
We’re joined by the very insightful Megan Norton (web: adultthirdculturekid.com, podcast: “A Culture Story”, Instagram: adult_third_culture_kid) to discuss the cultural impact of sports, the challenges of repatriation, and dole out more useful fashion advice.
