My first podcast is live!

Hi all, my first podcast interview went live and I am finally ready to share 🙂 I was part of the great podcast by James Thomas which is called “4-Seas-1-Family”. This podcast focuses on fascinating stories from all around the world and each guest brings their own perspective on the table. 

The horror of listening to your own voice

The podcast episode went live last week but it took me a while to be able to listen to it. Maybe you can resonate with that: Listening to your own voice – especially in another language – is making me really feel uncomfortable. We recorded that episode a couple of weeks ago and I could not even remember my answers. So each time I was curious and anxious at the same time what my answer to his question was. Thomas is such a great host and his voice makes you calm immediately. So if you want to share your story I can highly recommend to write a message to Thomas. I will link his contacts below. 

Talking about Travel and the struggle of the expat partner

Giving interviews is always funny as you never know what parts of whole story will be picked out. In the case of this podcast I was talking a lot about my solotravel experience but also about the struggle of being a new Expat Partner. These are both topics that are really important to me. 

What Jame's podcast 4-Seas-1-Family is all about

The podcast “Four Seas One Family” began as a simple platform where expats and those individuals who are or were thinking about becoming expats can gather, talk about and share expat experiences. The main goal is to promote the exchanges of cultural understandings and interactions through an expat experience among people regardless of location, social class, religion, politics and other, even opposing, points of views and beliefs. 

James Thomas is the founder and host of the Four Seas One Family podcast. James is  an American expatriate podcast producer specializing in creating podcasts about expat living all over the world. He has been podcasting and videocasting from Taiwan since 2009 about life and culture in Taiwan, Mainland China and Japan. James is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and attended universities in both Mainland China and Taiwan.

The main purpose of the podcast "Four Seas One Family" is to demystify things surrounding expat living and at the same time show that cultures have more in common than most people think. This should give even more reasons to why people must be more open-minded and caring towards eachother. This podcast opens a path to engagement and understanding between people of different cultural backgrounds. I am glad to see that this podcast is helping expats all over the world share their personal experiences concerning their living and working experiences outside their home nation." ing elit dolor

THE CONCEPT OF INTENSIVE MOTHERING

Most mothers struggle with juggling the different roles in their life. How to enjoy work while also caring for children? How to deal with public opinions about being a good mother? How to encounter colleagues at work who diminish your level of commitment? Many academic papers are researching the manifold challenges of motherhood. Today, I want to introduce you to the concept of intensive mothering and its effect on the working mothers’ experiences focusing on the paper by Lamar and Forbes (published April 2020) called “A phenomenological investigation into the role of intensive mothering in working mothers’ career experiences.”

Motherhood & Career Planning – Deciding on a family model

Becoming a mother most likely creates a shift in your perspectives and your priorities in life. Like with any other major life change it offers the possibility to reflect on the path behind and provokes the question of What next? While mother AND father are facing a new era, it is especially challenging for the one who pauses a career and becomes the major caregiver. In this blog post, I reflect on the different family models and how to decide what’s best for you.

Moving countries during an epidemic

5 weeks in our very own repatriation journey I want to take the chance and reflect. How does it feel to move back to your home country? How does someone adjust to a culture that is familiar but distant at the same time? Oh, and yes, let’s not forget that we are all trying to create a new normal in times of Covid19.

How expat families are coping with the coronavirus

2020 had a rough start in terms of global news. The outbreak of the coronavirus was one of them. The sheer amount of media coverage (on all levels of quality) and the uncertainty that the virus outbreak brought to many lives also affected expat families around the globe but specifically those closer to the area of origin. I was wondering, how expat families are coping with the challenge, how they made their decision on whether to stay or to go “home”, and what they have learned from the current situation.

How to Network After Moving to Chicago (or any city!)

Moving to a new city can definitely be a challenging process, especially if you do not know anyone there. Whether due to a new job, apartment, or relationship, the process of networking with a totally new crowd can be intimidating – even if you’re already outgoing. And that is after you have adjusted to the new location.
