Americans in Germany Drinking Whiskey: A Podcast for Expats & Those Who Love to Travel
--- Episode 38 - Forever Young: Growing Up in Germany vs. USA ---
Everyone experiences growing pains, no matter where you may have called home as a kid. This week, we’re going to look into the differences between childhood experiences in the USA and Germany. Some of the major differences include the schools, the level of independence from parents, and of course, when a teen will be able to buy their first beer! To help give us the German side of the story, we are once again joined by Felicia, the host of the YouTube channel “German Girl in America.” We compare her experiences growing up in Munich against ours in California and Rhode Island. Prepare to feel forever young!
Alex and Geoff met in Berlin many years after each moved separately to Germany. In the summer of 2019, while enjoying some (many) beers at the Prater beer garden, their girlfriends gave them the absurd suggestion of creating a podcast. After some thought, they realized it might actually be a fun idea considering how much they both enjoy giving advice to other expats who've recently arrived in Germany. The last step was to make it unique from other "living abroad" podcasts that already existed. Whiskey was the answer.
