Episode036: When your favorite parts of America start with F

Welcome back to the start of Season 3! We have missed y’all over the last two months, but it was a good break for us! Now we are ready to get back to sharing life with our little podcast community.

In recording this episode, a new intro was in order! The other two times we have changed the two will mark our first two seasons. Episode001 – Episode014 will be Season 1, and Season002 covers Episode015-035. And now with a new intro (check it out again!), we have a fresh start for Season 3 starting with Episode036.

In Episode036, we come together to discuss each of our top 3 things we loved about our visits to the states. While some of them overlapped, you may be interested to hear Jason’s #3. This conversation reminisces about all the feels of what it is like to be an expat coming home after a year abroad. Spoiler* Catie’s all start with ‘F.’



In other news, we sent out two emails in our absence, and are welcome to catch up with those here. Also, there are a few blog posts that we wrote over the summer. Click on the ones you want to read below:

And don’t worry! We will get to our SEAsia tour that we took in July with our friends, Eric and Ashley.
