  • Episode 428: The Infodemic (with Joel Simon and Robert Mahoney)
    Two years after the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, what will the long-term effects be? Not just in terms of public health, but in terms of privacy, censorship, and government control? This week, we are joined by journalists Joel Simon and Robert Mahoney, co-authors of The Infodemic: How Censorship and Lies Made the World Sicker and Less Free. The authors explain how, “as COVID-19 spread around the world, so did government censorship. The Infodemic lays bare not just old-fashioned censorship, but also the mechanisms of a modern brand of ‘censorship through noise,’ which moves beyond traditional means of state control—such as the jailing of critics and restricting the flow of information—to open the floodgates of misinformation, overwhelming the public with lies and half-truths.” Joel and Robert talk about how the Covid crisis has exacerbated a mistrust in institutions, a deterioration of local news outlets, and a deep sense of cynicism that is born of lack of information. Don’t miss this fascinating conversation about something that affects all of us in one way or another. Find Joel Simon on Instagram and Twitter. Find Robert Mahoney on Twitter.

  • Bittersweet Moment #154: The Good News about Depressing Math
    How many weeks (roughly) do you have left to live? The answer will probably shock you, accoriding to author and cartoonisht Tim Urban, as most of us like to think our lives are, somehow, infinite. But even more surprising than that, Urban points out, are the number of days we have left with the people closest to us, not because they are about to die, but because we simply see them much less often than we once did. On this mini-episode, Katy reads some excerpts from Tim's recent opinion piece for the New York Times, How Covid Stole Our Time, and How We Can Get It Back, an article that offers (impossible as it sounds) a positive opportunity that comes from understanding this stark reality. Tim Urban is the author and illustrator of the blog Wait But Why. You can also find him on Instagram and Twitter. ------------------------------------- ADVERTISE WITH US: Reach expats, future expats, and travelers all over the world.

  • Episode 427: Listener Questions Answered
    We are proud to say that we have some of the most engaged listeners in the entire podcast world! We get lots of mail from our listeners, both comments and questions about specific past episodes, as well as suggestions for future episodes and questions about life (often expat life) in general. Every so often, we grab a few of those letters and read them on air, address the questions and offer our suggestions.  Today we hear from a third culture kid who is married to another third culture kid, and the challenges he has faced and the rewards he has experienced during his untethered, multi-cultural life. We also get a question from a young former-expat who is desperate to move abroad again permanently, but struggling to find the most practical way to do so. For a chance to hear your email addressed on air, write to us here. ------------------------------------- ADVERTISE WITH US: Reach expats, future expats, and travelers all over the world.

  • Bittersweet Moment #153: Aurelio's Big Surprise
    When Tiffany's mom (and Aurelio's Nana) came to Rome for a visit over Easter, they didn't tell Aurelio that his cousin Parker was coming too.  It was a surprise they kept for months (and almost spilled more than once!) but it was worth it. On this mini-episode, hear Aurelio's reaction when he discovers his adored cousin has come to surprise him. ------------------------------------- ADVERTISE WITH US: Reach expats, future expats, and travelers all over the world.

  • Episode 426: Touring Rome with Tiffany
    What’s it like to be a tour guide in Rome? How do you break into the business? And how do you learn all the facts, much less put them together to make a coherent, enjoyable tour that lasts just the right amount of time? On this episode, Katy grills Tiffany on her over 15 years’ experience as a tour guide in Rome, the challenges, the rewards, and the best part of all: taking our podcast listeners on tour when they are in Rome! Tiffany shares how tiring it can be to be engaging, entertaining, and "on" for three hours straight (or more), all the while remembering and reciting endless dates, names, facts, and anecdotes. (Hint: there is one tiny thing that can make it much more exhausting than normal!) She also talks about the specific tours she offers—including a Caravaggio hunt!—and why she refuses to lead tours of the Colosseum and Vatican. Don’t forget, you can take a tour of Rome with Tiffany too! Learn about the tours she offers here, or just send us an email! PS Tiffany's vast knowledge of Rome and Katy's brilliant audio editing skills come together in a Virtual Tour of Rome! Taped in the height of lockdown in spring of 2020, and half a world apart—but you'd never know it by listening! Don't miss one of our most popular episodes ever! PPS We did a different two-part Virtual Tour of Rome with Special Guests, when we "ran into" important former guests on the streets of Rome, such as Mary Beard, Robert MacFarlane, Amy Herman, Mo Rocca, and many others.  ------------------------------------- ADVERTISE WITH US: Reach expats, future expats, and travelers all over the world.
