QUESTION of the EPISODE: What issues did your local friends have when they tried to visit OR move to your passport country?


What is the Over There podcast doing?

We are exploring expressions of life overseas, wherever that may be. What are these lives like, where are people living overseas, what are they experiencing while living there-both internally AND externally? Even more so, how and where are we sharing our experiences-both on and offline, although there is a digital sharing bias cause I am a tech lover at heart.
