In Between Expats

Rodrigo Bravo

Are you an expat, or have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in a foreign country? Or how people managed to start a family, a business, or become an artist abroad? In that case, my guests will give you some answers. In this podcast my goal is to talk to people from all walks of life who ventured to a foreign country because of love, work, or simply adventure and discuss how their lives have changed as a result of that decision. What will you get out of this show? Definitely you’ll hear unique stories and perspectives. You may find inspiration to, post-covid of course, finally quit that boring job in your hometown and go out and see the world. Or you may simply want to know what it’s like to live on the other side of the planet while you exercise or walk the dog. It’s up to you. I started this podcast because I’m an expat myself for many years, I’m based in Prague - Czech Republic and I suppose I became an expat or immigrant at the age of five when I moved with my family from Los Angeles to Ecuador, and five years later, we would return to Southern California. So far, I’ve lived in 4 countries, and have no current plans to return to the U.S. So join me and I look forward to your comments. If you have an interesting story about being an expat, email me at inbetweenexpats@gmail.com, maybe you’d like to be on the show at some point. I’m also on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Just type @inbetweenexpats. And if you speak Spanish, you can listen to: https://feeds.captivate.fm/entreexpatriados/ It’s the same show, but in a different language. read less

Please click on the links for clarification and context.  The very charismatic American artist, April Popko, has lived and worked from her Prague art studio since 2003. She discusses how after having spent time in Australia and the Netherlands, she was done with expat life. That’s until she met her Czech husband. April left her native Provincetown, MA to live in Prague and through a series of circumstances, she became well known in the Czech art scene. She discusses how her life as an expat and family have influenced her paintings, and how even in difficult situations -such as the ongoing pandemic, her art work attempts to offer positivity to those experiencing it.
